Description: St. Elizabeth’s Hospital of Belleville, Illinois and Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) are proposing to move St. Elizabeth’s Hospital to a new site, seven miles northeast of the current location. This project would include discontinuing St. Elizabeth’s Belleville facility and establishing a new facility.
The replacement hospital will be 351,130 square feet and will cost $235,471,535. It will feature 144 beds, a reduction from the current facility. At the new site, St. Elizabeth’s will be readily accessible by major highways serving the Metro East Illinois region.
In addition to this main hospital building, St. Elizabeth’s will lease 65,269 square feet of space in a physically attached ambulatory care center/physician office building for use for hospital services, administrative space, and employed physician office space. The cost associated with leasing the space is $34,243,594 and is the subject of a separately filed Certificate of Need application.
