County Health Department Cuts Ribbon For New Health Campus in Berkeley

County Executive Charlie A. Dooley and Health Department Director Dr. Dolores J. Gunn and other government leaders cut the ribbon on Friday for the department’s new Health Campus, located at 6121 North Hanley Road, Berkeley. Most of the clinic services were open to the public on Monday, Aug. 6.

The new Health Campus replaces the old health department headquarters at 111 South Meramec Avenue in Clayton.

“This new facility represents many great things for Saint Louis County,” Dooley said. “It’s a modern, state-of-the-art approach to our public health efforts.”

Besides replacing the old John C. Murphy Health Center, the two-story, 93,455 square foot structure utilizes the best in energy-saving, “green” technology that will save taxpayers money through lower utility bills, Dooley said.

The project was financed, in part, by Build America Bonds – part of President Obama’s economic recovery legislation and it created hundreds of construction jobs, Dooley noted.

For her part, Gunn said the new facility would help the department deliver public health services in a more efficient and timely manner.

“Our new state-of-the-art, ‘green’ facility will allow the health department to take advantage of the newest, environmentally-friendly technology to reduce our operating costs while we serve the county’s public health needs,” Gunn said.

The health campus was constructed by Clayco-Legacy – a joint venture that was awarded the contract in February of 2011.  The project was completed ahead of schedule.
