St. Anthony Hospital is moving ahead on plans to expand its MidTown home and create a new facility in Mustang at a total cost of $83 million, okc.BIZ reports.
According to Joe Hodges, the regional president of SSM Healthcare, St. Anthony’s owner, the $53 million expansion plan for the MidTown campus is the largest in the hospital’s history. Designed by the REES architectural firm, the expansion will comprise 125,000 square feet and will feature four patient-care floors, a rooftop heliport and an underground parking structure.
The first phase of the project calls for the addition of surface parking in order to free up space for the new structure bordered by N.W. Eighth and Ninth streets and Dewey and Walker Aves. Groundbreaking is scheduled for next month and completion is expected by fall 2014.
In Mustang, St. Anthony intends to partner with Miller Neff Development on 90,000-square-foot medical campus. Situated at the intersection of State Highway 152 and Sara Road, the new campus will cost an estimated $30 million. St. Anthony Healthplex Mustang will feature a full-service emergency room and will be similar to the facility St. Anthony opened in south Oklahoma City last year. Architectural and engineering services for the project will be provided by Jason Givens with Miller Architects Inc.
