Campus Renewal



The Campus Renewal Project on the medical center campus will consist of new construction and renovations with an overall focus on improving the patient and family experience from both a clinical and campus perspective. In 2013, the first phase of the project began with the abatement and demolition of the former Jewish Hospital and the Jewish Hospital School of Nursing along Kingshighway Boulevard. When this phase of the project ends, Barnes-Jewish Hospital will have a new inpatient tower to consolidate obstetrics and gynecological services, expanded clinical care at the Siteman Cancer Center, expand other surgical programs

and create new space for diagnostics and treatment. St. Louis Children's Hospital will have an increased number of private beds with expanded diagnostics and treatments services, outpatient clinics and support services. The second phase of the project will include a new inpatient tower for Barnes-Jewish Hospital’s expansion of the heart and vascular, neurology and neurosurgery, transplant, trauma and critical care, and general medicine programs.
