Improving our assets

The completion of the St. Mary’s Hospital Century Project adds more top-flight specialty medical services to a growing array of treatment options in the Grand Valley.

With the completion of two floors in St. Mary’s 12-story tower, the hospital added capacity for advanced nueroscience care — treating stroke victims and epilepsy — along with more beds for general medical care.

That caps a $339 million project that began a decade ago. In the interim, the hospital replaced two linear accelerators in its cancer center, undertook a $600,000 remodel of its family medicine residency and began planning for a new cardiac center.

If St. Mary’s was the only game in town, such an investment would be impressive.
