New $253M St. Elizabeth's Hospital to open in November

A $253 million hospital that will replace the current St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Bellville, Ill., is under construction in O'Fallon, Ill., reports the Belleville News-Democrat.

St. Elizabeth's Hospital is part of Springfield, Ill.-based Hospital Sisters Health System and the new facility will open Nov. 4. Construction began in June 2015.

"We are excited to have a date planned for the opening of our new facility. Our patient move day will be the culmination of years of discernment, planning, construction and coordination," St. Elizabeth Hospital President and CEO Peg Sebastian said in a released statement, according to the report. "We will achieve our goal of creating a healing environment that combines technology and efficiencies to provide region leading, high quality healthcare."

Hospital leaders and staff have been working behind the scenes to ensure a smooth transition between the closing of the Belleville Hospital and the opening of the O'Fallon one, according to the report.
