SCP Hospital’s BIG PLANS for 2007 & beyond
Hospital CEO Federico Martinez
That’s the word from hospital CEO Federico Martinez, who told the St. Charles Business Association that all three floors of the 56-room expansion have been framed - and part of the roof has been completed, too.
“The project is moving along very well,” said Martinez.
“The building is really beginning to take shape.”
The addition will add new inpatient facilities, a psychiatric unit, new intensive care facilities, and a large and technologically advanced cardiology department in addition to a dialysis center.
“We expect to bring everything online next January,” said Martinez.“We’re really excited because it will give us state-of-the-art facilities.”
Most of the hospital was built in the 1970s and some portions of it don’t meet today’s standards - a situation the addition and other improvements will correct.
The assisted-living center planned for Ashton Plantation is expected to be built on a 10-acre parcel that the hospital hopes to close on in July.
The plan is to initially construct a 50-unit facility with round-the-clock care for residents.
If it is a success, the hospital will build a second facility of 50-100 units, Martinez said.
“We’ve done our homework,” he continued. “What we’ve got in mind is to build a first-class assisted-living facility.”
Martinez said the hospital is still shopping around for the best financing to help ensure the cost-effectiveness of the project.
“We’re hoping to hear some good news,” he said. “Hopefully we can break ground this year and open in the later part of next year.”
