For more than 60 years, our hospital has been the center of health care for our families, neighbors and friends. Since 1956, our community has worked to ensure McCall has a vibrant, forward-thinking medical center where the best physicians want to practice and patients want to receive care.
Today that means making significant changes to our hospital. We’ve maximized every space and squeezed every bit of efficiency out of our hospital, which has been remodeled, renovated, and remodeled again for decades. And our region is growing and aging, increasing the demand for healthcare services. Emergency Department visits have increased by 42 percent since 2010; surgeries have increased by 182 percent since 2010; and lab tests are up 36 percent in the same time period.It’s time to truly bring St. Luke’s McCall into the 21st century and ensure we can continue to provide the high-quality, convenient care the people of our community deserve. And although medicine, technology and science have exploded with possibility, what hasn’t changed is the value we all place on having the right care, right here in McCall.
After more than 10 years of planning, road and utility improvements around St. Luke’s McCall began July 9. This work is in preparation of the hospital expansion project. Road work is anticipated to continue through October.
The road work will be done in three phases, which includes property structure removals rerouting Hewitt Street, road improvements and utility upgrades.
This year’s improvements prepare the site for a new two-story structure that will include an expanded and modernized emergency department, medical imaging, laboratory, cardiopulmonary and infusion departments. The addition also will allow for more inpatient, labor and delivery and operating rooms.
Work continues on schematic, development and construction design. A second public process for approval will take place later this year, with construction of the new two-story structure to begin in 2019.
St. Luke's is community owned and operated. We look forward to serving the people of the West Central Mountains region for many years to come. We welcome any questions you may have about our medical center expansion, and are grateful for your interest.
