St. Anthony Breaks Ground on the Pavilion in Midtown
St. Anthony Hospital officially marked the beginning of its new construction of The Pavilion project on its Midtown Oklahoma City campus on August 13, 2014. Although clearing of the space to make room for the new building began earlier in July, the groundbreaking ceremony made the commencement of the construction project official to an audience that included civic and community leaders, Midtown neighbors, staff, physicians and volunteers.
The Pavilion, located south of 10th Street between Dewey and Walker Avenue, will house a new emergency department, intensive care units, and inpatient care areas. The 111,000 square foot, four-story facility project is slated to be complete in May 2016. The project cost is $53 million.
“We are excited to see the start of the St. Anthony Pavilion project, as it represents enhancement of the exceptional care we provide to our patients. The facility addresses the space needed to expand services and meet our growing needs for inpatient and emergency services,” said Tammy Powell, president, St. Anthony Hospital. “The Pavilion is also significant in that it represents the crowning point of the $220 million in campus development that we committed to just over 10 years ago when we affirmed our desire to stay in Midtown.”
