Work has already begun on a $15 million expansion project at Marcus Daly
Memorial Hospital involving the construction of a brand new set of operating
rooms for general surgical services and the addition of an operating room
dedicated to caesarian sections adjoining the Birthing Center.
The new ORs are being built on the north end of the current Main Hospital
building and will be served by a separate entranceway complete with heated
sidewalks and a drive-up entranceway. According to MDMH CEO John Bartos,
this project is one of the last major projects in an 18-year-long effort
at implementing the hospital’s Master Plan.
