A new 300-million-dollar hospital is going up in O’Fallon. St. Elizabeth's Hospital will build a new facility with 144 private patient rooms, an ER department, operating rooms, and an intensive care unit. The new building will be located near I-64 and Green Mount Road but there's no word on when the construction will get underway.
The O'Fallon hospital will replace the downtown Belleville facility, which is in desperate need of repair. That location will be turned into a health care services building with radiology, labs, and doctor's offices.
