Memorial Receives Economic Impact Award for Memorial Hospital East Medical Office Building

The O’Fallon-Shiloh Chamber of Commerce presented Memorial Hospital East Administrator Jeff Dossett with its 2019 Economic Impact Award for the Memorial Hospital East Medical Office Building (MOB) – Phase I project at the Chamber’s awards luncheon in April.

The $25 million, three-story, 70,500-squarefoot MOB opened on Memorial Hospital East’s Shiloh campus in October 2017. This building provides office space for primary care and physician specialists as well as imaging (including CT scanning); laboratory; physical, occupational, and speech therapy; and The Harold & Dixie LePere Breast Health Center.

Over 120,000 imaging studies, lab procedures, mammograms/breast procedures, and therapy treatments have been performed in the MOB between October 2017 and February 2019.

“This new Medical Office Building has been a great addition to the Memorial East campus,” said Mark J. Turner, president of Memorial Regional Health Services, Inc. “Our affiliation with BJC HealthCare has enabled us to provide area residents with an enhanced array of services including convenient access to women’s services and pediatric specialists from Washington University and St. Louis Children’s Hospital. We are very honored to be recognized by the O’Fallon-Shiloh Chamber for our investment in the community.”

The O’Fallon-Shiloh Chamber of Commerce recognizes local businesses, organizations, and individuals annually for their ongoing support and impact on the community.

Expected to open in early 2020, Phase II of the Memorial Hospital East MOB is currently under construction and will be home to Siteman Cancer Center.
