BJC HealthCare unveiled a new hospital in Creve Coeur on Tuesday, replacing a structure that was built 50 years ago.

The new Barnes-Jewish West County hospital is a 260,000-square-foot facility, located at 12634 Olive Boulevard. The company broke ground on the project in May 2017.

The facility has 64 private rooms, 14 operating rooms and four intensive care unit rooms.

It is located behind the existing facility, which was built in 1969 as Faith Hospital, and was later sold to BJC HealthCare. The existing hospital will be replaced with green space and parking.

The hospital has the capacity to add 32 additional rooms and two more operating rooms, according to a press release.

“With increased capacity, increased technology and a spacious environment, we are going to be able to attract and serve our community much better,” said Yoany Finetti, vice president of patient care services and chief nursing officer for the hospital.

The hospital will open on Tuesday.
