BJC_masonAccording to WhoLou sources BJC HealthCare expects to open a new pediatric hospital in Town and Country by December of 2014. The hospital will be constructed at Highway 40 and Mason Rd. The site was formerly the headquarters for Troop C of the Missouri State Highway Patrol from 1968 to 2008.

Paric Corp. and Cannon Design have reportedly been selected by BJC as general contractor and architect for the project. The team was selected over the triumvirate of Tarlton Corp.Arcturis, and BSA LifeStructures according to WhoLou sources.

In 2008 BJC reportedly purchased the 16-acre property for an estimated $8 million when Troop C moved to St. Charles County. Most recently West County EMS and Fire Protection had been using the facility while their headquarters at Clayton and Mason roads was being renovated.

In 2012, nextSTL first reported BJC had begun pre-construction activities with intentions to soon develop the 40 and Mason Rd. site. An attempt to reach BJC vice president of corporate and public communications June Fowler for comment was unsuccessful.

    Obviously Paul McKee’s time on the board has paid off.

    Putting 2 and 2 together … I wish Space had been awarded the design for this. (Sorry. Brain slip. Edit.)

    booo
    Nothing should be built any more in the suburbs. Nothing.
    Focus everything in the city. City is the key to our region.

    Wash-U attendings are not going to be please when BJC insists that they truck out there to do rounds when on service.

    it’s obviously meant to compete with mercy’s children’s hospital nearby…to attract patients from the burbs who don’t want to come into the city. and, RyleyinSTL, i’d disagree…most of the Wash U attendings live in the burbs in the first place, so it’s not too much trucking

      There are plenty of attendings who won’t like that. There’s a reason only a tiny percentage of NICU attendings rotate through MoBap. If everyone is required to rotate through there, people will start leaving.
