SSM Health continues its expansion for the growing St. Charles County population with the April 24 opening of a 55,700-square-foot, $26 million SSM Health Outpatient Center.
Located near Interstate 70 and Fifth Street at 711 Veterans Memorial Parkway, the center provides patients easy access to primary and specialty health care services, including an urgent care clinic and advanced imaging services such as MRI, CT, X-ray, ultrasound, mammography and bone density.
The new SSM Health Outpatient Center is a collaboration between SSM Health St. Joseph Hospital – St. Charles and SSM Health Medical Group, providing a new home for SSM Health specialists in internal medicine, pediatrics, endocrinology, and SSM Health Physical Therapy. Additional offerings include an outpatient laboratory, retail pharmacy, education center and a café.
“This center represents the culmination of SSM Health’s vision for the future of health care in St. Charles County,” said Mike Bowers, president of SSM Health St. Joseph Hospital – St. Charles. “Placing greater emphasis on outpatient care allows us to improve the health care experience by building relationships with our patients and actively promoting healthy lifestyle decisions. We would like to thank our employees, physicians and community partners for helping make this vision a reality.”
The outpatient center comes on the heels of a significant patient tower and outpatient services expansion nearing completion at SSM Health St. Joseph Hospital – Lake Saint Louis, and the 2016 opening of an SSM Health Outpatient Center in Wentzville. The new center adds to SSM Health’s strong presence in St. Charles County that includes three hospitals, two urgent care sites, existing outpatient centers in St. Peters and Wentzville, and SSM Health Medical Group locations as far west as Warrenton and north as Troy.
Designed and built in partnership with the Lawrence Group and Alberici Healthcare, the SSM Health Outpatient Center will house many of the clinical offices previously located at the SSM Health Medical Group building at 1551 Wall Street in St. Charles.
