The First of Its Kind

SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Pediatrics Specialty Clinic
SSM Health & Sansone Group
Ferguson, MO

KAI provided Design-Build services for the new Cardinal Glennon Pediatrics Specialty Clinic, the first pediatric specialty healthcare center in North St. Louis County. The 15,000 SF medical building houses the SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Pediatric Specialty Services and also an office of SSM Health Medical Group Pediatrics. Specialty services offered at the new center include gastroenterology, ENT (otolaryngology), orthopedics, pulmonology, neurology and endocrinology.

The building’s child-friendly design incorporates the use of natural lighting; a mix of vibrant colors on the walls and furniture; comforting natural materials like wood and stone; and whimsical, hand-painted artwork throughout. The single-story facility is broken down into two separate services—one half of the building is occupied by SSM Health and the other half is occupied by SSM Cardinal Glennon. Both tenants share a common reception area, waiting room and isolated sick waiting room. Each side has at least 12 exam rooms, and the facility features an audiology booth, procedure room, casting room, X-Ray room and space for a future ultrasound and mobile MRI.

The Impact

Providing quality healthcare to an underserved area

SSM Health Cardinal Glennon became the first and only healthcare provider to open a pediatric specialty clinic in North St. Louis County. This is an important expansion for SSM Health, as it allows families in and near Ferguson, MO to receive high-quality care from SSM Health and SLUCare providers without the need to leave their communities.

"The most exciting thing about our North County site is the growth and the ability to reach out into the North County of St. Louis and to be present for all the children as far as their respective specialty and primary care needs"
