St. John Medical Center Master Plan Approved

City Council approved the plan before breaking for the month of August.

City Council gave the go-ahead to 's master plan for a five-year, $100-million renovation and expansion project Thursday night.

Several details like signage, lighting and tree locations still need city approval, but the joint project between University Hospitals and the Sisters of Charity Health System will go ahead as planned.

The construction project will add 35,000 square feet to the site, along with technological upgrades, a relocated helipad, patient room renovations, a clinical decision unit, expanded parking and new entrances.

"The plan is pretty similar to the plan approved in '07," said Planning Director Bob Parry, noting that the city recommends a new master plan about every five years.

Six parcels of the hopsital's land will be combined into one lot as well.

City Council will be on recess for the month of August and will resume regular meetings Sept. 1.
