More than 20 years ago, our board of directors and leadership team established a long-term vision to invest in the health care of our friends and neighbors for generations to come. This required great insight, careful planning, and a forward-thinking approach to how our community would grow and change.
The Pavilion was a labor of love. We broke ground at the St. Joseph hospital over six years ago. Yet the journey to get to where we are today started long before that.
The Pavilion was the second phase of a hospital replacement strategy to transform many of our clinical areas to modern, high-tech spaces. Some spaces of the facility were built more than 50 years ago and the technology and needs of our teams have certainly changed. This approach to construction allowed us to deliver uninterrupted care within the current hospital— ideally located at the intersection of the Benton Harbor and St. Joseph communities.
Today, the newly renovated Main Street features a welcoming entryway with multiple visitor amenities and an enhanced wayfinding experience for all clinical services within the hospital.
