OSF St. Francis Hospital broke ground at the end of October on a new medical office building in Gladstone, to replace its current Gladstone clinic.
The new building is both updated and bigger at 18,000 square feet, to be located at 145 4th Avenue NE. Developer Cullinan Properties and OSF, Inc. are putting $5 million into the project to improve health care in Gladstone.
Officials from the hospital and community held a groundbreaking ceremony at the site just before Halloween, and OSF director of physician practices, Dr. Kim Johnson, said the new facility will make leaps for accessibility for patients, and add services available right in the community.
The added space means more patient exam rooms and two state-of-the-art minor treatment rooms to improve wound care, a new lab and medical imaging equipment including an on-site digital x-ray machine, and an office for occupational medicine and audiology services, to serve rehab patients in Gladstone.
