Kadean Construction in October is scheduled to complete a major renovation of Christian Hospital in unincorporated St. Louis County, Missouri.
The renovation of the hospital’s lobby will include custom case work, specialty glass and tile installation and wood-look plank ceiling features.
The 10,500-square-foot, $2 million renovation of the hospital, located on Dunn Road near Highway 367 and Interstate-270 in unincorporated St. Louis County, will improve aesthetics and flow, making a more welcoming space for patients as they enter the hospital, said project manager Travis Mulder, who oversees Kadean’s medical construction work.
For construction to begin last March, Kadean had to prepare a temporary entrance and registration area on the east side of the hospital.
The architect on the renovation is St. Louis-based Lawrence Group and the MEP/FP engineer was Heideman & Associates. The construction work has kept Kadean’s 25 subcontractors and suppliers busy on site.
As a founding member of BJC HealthCare, Christian Hospital was established in 1903 and is an accredited, full-service medical center that provides medical care to residents throughout the greater St. Louis area and Southern Illinois.
The renovations are part of a $60 million initiative called “Christian Hospital 2020,” which includes transitioning to all private patient rooms; a $2.7 million lab equipment upgrade; a $1 million investment in a new ambulance fleet; converting to a new $16 million universal electronic medical record system; opening two new health centers; and other improvements designed to ensure the best patient experience.
Christian Hospital opened at its current location in September 1975 and is located six miles east of Christian Hospital’s Northwest HealthCare campu in Florissant, Missouri, which recently broke ground for a new $26.3 million Siteman Cancer Center.
