Part of a $1B expansion project: BJC Healthcare unveils 12-story patient tower

As part of a planned $1 billion transformation project, St. Louis-based BJC Healthcare unveiled its 12-story inpatient tower at St. Louis-based Barnes-Jewish Hospital and an expansion of St. Louis Children's Hospital Friday, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The new inpatient space, named Parkview Tower, will consolidate labor and delivery facilities in the Women's & Infant's Center and will expand inpatient care for the health system's Siteman Cancer Center. The building also has over 400 parking spaces, according to the St. Louis Business Journal.

The St. Louis Children's Hospital expansion includes an enlarged neonatal intensive care unit that connects via skywalk to the Parkview Tower. Before the expansion, there was no direct access to the NICU from the labor and delivery rooms.

The project also includes a new ambulatory procedure center, a new helipad and updated elevators.
