New heart hospital opens for patients
The multi-phased construction of the new Mercy Heart Hospital Springfield is now complete after four years, and the hospital is open and welcoming patients. IMEG provided engineering design and services for the hospital, which consolidates Mercy’s cardiovascular care into one facility.
The new 120,000-sf hospital houses seven cath labs, a hybrid cath lab, hybrid OR, four cardiac ORs, nuclear medicine, inpatient and outpatient clinics, and a new 5,900-sf mechanical penthouse. Many of the diagnostic services and procedures provided at the heart hospital aren’t offered anywhere else in the region.
