Project Facts

  • BJC HealthCare has embarked on a long-term project to renew the medical center campus on Kingshighway Boulevard encompassing BJC’s Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital along with Washington University School of Medicine.
  • The vision is to transform the campus over the next 10 years through renovations and new construction, creating an environment and experience for patients that matches the excellence in medical care they expect.
  • During the first phase of the project, a partnership among Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis Children's Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine will consolidate obstetrics and gynecological services and move these services to the north end of the campus, including an expansion of St. Louis Children's Hospital. Additional revitalization will consolidate and expand clinical care at the Siteman Cancer Center and other surgical programs and include space for faculty practice clinics and diagnostics.
  • Phase two of the project calls for renovation and construction on the south end of the campus that will focus on Barnes-Jewish Hospital’s expanding heart and vascular program, neurology and neurosurgery programs, transplant, trauma and critical care, and general medicine programs. Additional private inpatient rooms are a key component of the overall project.
  • Major improvements during the 10-year project to open and public areas, parking and transportation include improved clarity, function and aesthetic qualities of the campus; clear pedestrian paths connecting north-south and east-west; an additional 2,400 parking spaces; improved aspects of patient/family/visitors arrival and departure; and consolidated and relocated  service traffic on the entire campus.
  • The project team, led by program manager Jacobs (which also led the Campus Integration Project here 1998-2001), includes construction manager ACW Alliance (an Alberici-led joint venture that includes Clayco and SM Wilson); executive architect HOK; Bard, Rao + Athanas Consulting Engineers (BR+A); and diversity consultant Marks & Associates.
