Mercy Continues Metro Expansion

November 6, 2017

A blessing and groundbreaking ceremony were on October 31 for a second Mercy Hospital in south Oklahoma City. It will be the first full-service hospital built in the city limits in almost half-a-century – the last hospital being the existing Mercy, which was built on Memorial Road and Meridian Avenue in 1974.

The $150-million project will include:

  • A six-story, 228,000-square-foot patient tower
  • Space for up to 72 patient beds
  • Space for an intensive care unit
  • Surgery and endoscopy (internal imaging camera) suites
  • Outpatient imaging for X-rays, ultrasound, radiography, computed CT scans and MRI  
  • Cancer and infusion services
  • An inpatient pharmacy
  • Chapel
  • Shell space for additional growth

Mercy’s new hospital, targeted for completion in 2020, will be built on the current campus of Oklahoma Heart Hospital (OHH) South, at I-240 and Sooner Road. Built in 2010, the heart hospital will also undergo renovations for an expanded emergency room, heart catheterization lab and additional beds to accommodate a growing population in south Oklahoma City. OHH has been Mercy’s partner in providing cardiology services to patients for more than 15 years.
