On May 30, leaders from BJC HealthCare, Washington University School of Medicine, the hospital medical staff, Creve Coeur city officials, and the project team gathered to ceremonially break ground for the new Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital. The event honored the past and celebrated the future of medicine in Creve Coeur.
Trish Lollo, Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital president, recognized the continuation of caring for the community envisioned by the Signorelli family when they opened Faith Hospital in 1969. Members of the Signorelli Family attended the groundbreaking, including Mark Signorelli, Terry Signorelli, Theresa (Signorelli) Callahan and Dan Signorelli.
Trish Lollo with Steve Lipstein, CEO of BJC Health Care. Mr. Lipstein shares that Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital has always stood proud on being a relatively small hospital, but being very patient centric, very responsive to the needs of the local community and very committed to the people of Creve Coeur.
