The deadliest tornado in Missouri and the U.S since 1947 directly hit the hospital.

The new, larger hospital has a construction budget of $335 million and will initially have 261 inpatient beds but expand to 309. Plans include medical surgical, critical care, women’s/children’s (labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum rooms), behavioral health and rehab. The new hospital will be located at the intersection of Interstate 44 and Main Street in Joplin.

“We are making this commitment because it’s the right thing to do for Joplin,” said Lynn Britton, president and CEO of Mercy, which includes 30 hospitals and more than 200 outpatient facilities in a seven-state area. “The May 22 tornado devastated our community in Joplin and destroyed our hospital, but we’ve promised all along we would rebuild. We worked closely with McCarthy to break ground in January 2012.”

McCarthy has worked with Chesterfield, Mo.-based Mercy since the disaster, arriving in Joplin just days after the massive tornado struck. McCarthy worked alongside the National Guard and volunteers around the clock to help set up a temporary 60-bed field hospital so that Mercy could re-establish medical services to the Joplin community as soon as possible. The tents have since been upgraded to insulated panels to better endure the winter. The facility is still in use and will serve patients until spring 2012, when a more secure temporary solution, a modular “component hospital,” will take its place.

“McCarthy is honored to serve as a trusted partner with Mercy throughout the years and specifically through this process,” said McCarthy Central Division President Scott Wittkop. “We were passionate about helping Mercy replace its battered building with a temporary field hospital only one week after the tornado devastated the city of Joplin. We are just as passionate about replacing the temporary hospital with a ‘component hospital, ’ and finally a bigger and better replacement hospital to serve the Joplin community.”

McCarthy has been working with Mercy planners to develop the functional program for the replacement hospital since July 2011. The architectural firms HKS, Inc. in association with Archimages, Inc. are part of the integrated team effort, with Heideman & Associates serving as the MEP Engineer.

Mercy is accepting donations to help those affected by the tornado at Mercy Foundation for Health Innovation Joplin Relief Fund.

Mercy is the eighth largest Catholic health care system in the U.S. and serves more than 3 million people annually. Mercy includes 30 hospitals, more than 200 outpatient facilities, 38,000 co-workers and 1,500 integrated physicians in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. Mercy also has outreach ministries in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. For more about Mercy, visit mercy.net.
