St. Francis Hospital to close main entrance during roof construction

SSM Health St. Francis Hospital in Maryville will be closing its main entrance for roof contstruction of the front lobby area next week. Patients will be diverted to temporary alternate entrances during the construction. Community Relations and Development Director Rita Miller says the new gable roof will be safer than the current roof.

"That amounts to taking the current roof off and then constructing a new roof that will be made of metal and glass, so we're not in the same situation we're currently in."

Miller says the project is being managed with as little patient disruption as possible.

"We want to try to keep our patients and visitors safe, and we're using two different alternate entrances into the building and hopefullly direct them to their destination."

The project begins August 13th and runs through September 14th. The north end of the north wing and the old front entrance south of the emergency entrance will be used as alternative entrances during the project. Emergency patients should use the ambulance bay entrance.
