Update on St Elizabeth's Plans
It has been a while since I last spoke about the changes coming to the former St Luke hospital that is now a part of the St Elizabeth health network. Gone are the shrubs on the hillside that spelled out St Luke and all the signage now shows the St Elizabeth logos. The traditional hospital services have been scaled back in favor of an enhanced, specialized women's health center.
I mentioned in a previous post about how the City of Fort Thomas was out maneuvered for property that sat next to the hospital and adjacent to the old Mildred Dean Elementary School which was based in Newport. The City of Newport realized that this land was unincorporated and quickly added it to the city to compliment the site of the old Elementary School.
Now we read in a story about St Elizabeth's expansion plans that part of St Elizabeth's $45 million in capital investments in 2011 could include a medical office complex on the site of the old elementary school which will surely include the annexed property.
