Nine-hospital St. Luke's Health System, Kansas City, Mo., announced a $250 million development plan for its flagship campus, St. Luke's Hospital, financed by a $75 million philanthropy campaign, new debt and funds from operations. The plan includes a replacement for the heart center at St. Luke's; renovation of the heart-center building into a dedicated space for the hospital's brain and stroke institute; consolidation of women's services into a new center; and development and equipping of specialty intensive care units for stroke and cardiac patients and premature infants. The project also will convert the hospital to all private rooms, add 200 parking spaces and double the amount of green space on the campus, St. Luke's said. The system aims to complete construction by late 2009. -- by Vince Galloro
