News Release: Lendlease Begins St. Luke’s Monroe Expansion

(Princeton, NJ, 13 March 2017) – Lendlease, one of the world’s largest development, property, infrastructure and construction management firms, is pleased to break ground on a new Medical Office Building (MOB) for St. Luke’s University Health Network. Located on St. Luke’s Monroe Campus in Pennsylvania, the MOB is adjacent to the new hospital that Lendlease recently completed.

“St. Luke’s has had a presence in Monroe County for more than 20 years during which time it built the relationships that have evolved into the base of patients it serves. These relationships are what led us to bring inpatient care to Monroe County. Now that our Monroe hospital has opened, we can move forward with the campus’s next expansion– the medical office building – in order to offer our patients easy access to St. Luke’s compassionate care,” Don Seiple, president of St. Luke’s Monroe Campus, said.

The new three-story MOB includes a comprehensive Cancer Center with an Infusion center and a Radiation Oncology treatment suite with a new linear accelerator. In addition, the MOB will include additional physician office space. This new 37,500-square-foot MOB will also include shelled space to allow for future growth of medical support services.

“We value the relationship that we have with St. Luke’s,” said Walter Jones, Operations Manager, Lendlease. “Between the recently completed state-of-the-art hospital and the commencement of the new MOB – we feel confident that we are helping St. Luke’s make a positive impact within this community.”

Opened in October 2016, the recently completed 185,000 sf hospital has 72 beds open with the capacity to hold 108 beds part of which includes 12 beds for critical care patients, a large and efficient emergency room, helipad, operating rooms, a cardiac catheterization lab and the most modern imaging and diagnostic technology. In January 2017 the fourth floor of Monroe Campus opened

as an acute rehabilitation unit operated by Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network.

Both the new hospital and MOB were designed with state-of-the-art equipment to meet the growing needs of the population. This is the first new hospital in Monroe County in 100 years. The campus features similar exterior elements including a signature fountain and walking trails nestled in a beautiful, natural setting that promotes wellness.
