HOOVER – The St. Vincent’s Health System announced Sept. 16 that the St. Vincent’s One Nineteen campus will be undergoing a $15.6 million, 40,000-square-foot expansion that is set to open in 2015.

The expansion will include an Ambulatory Surgery Center, Urgent Care Center and Professional Building with construction expected to begin this Fall.

STVHS President & CEO John O’Neil said the plan had been discussed since the opening of the facility 10 years ago, and touted the importance of putting it into action now.

“We are excited about the opportunity to continue serving this community in a very accessible way,” said O’Neil.“When we built our St. Vincent’s One Nineteen facility almost 10 years ago, we were dedicated to creating person-centered, quality care through the first health and wellness center of its kind in our community. The latest expansion builds on this unwavering mission to deliver the right care, at the right time, in the best way possible.”

St. Vincent’s One Nineteen currently has 35 physicians in 14 medical specialties, a comprehensive outpatient diagnostic imaging center, rehabilitation services, GI Lab, and wellness services and classes. These services are in addition to the spa and fitness center.

St. Vincent’s One Nineteen is one of five St. Vincent’s campuses that currently make up the St. Vincent’s Health System.
