Anderson Healthcare will add an ASC and pediatric clinic to its Edwardsville, Ill., campus in an $8.5 million expansion, according to the Edwardsville Intelligencer

Five details:

1. The Maryville, Ill.-based health system broke ground May 23 and aims to wrap up the 18,331-square-foot expansion in about one year.

2. The single-story ASC and pediatric clinic will be built in the first phase of construction. Three other buildings will be added later: a physician's office building, an urgent care center and an imaging center.

3. Featuring private pre- and postoperative areas, two operating rooms and a procedure room, the surgery center and clinic will employ about 20 workers. It will also house a lab draw station and an X-ray machine.

4. The pediatrics-equipped surgical center will be the first of its kind in southwestern Illinois, Marysville-based Anderson Hospital President and CEO Keith Page told the Intelligencer.

5. SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital in St. Louis signed a letter of intent to serve as Anderson's pediatric partner. St. Louis-based SLUCare Physician Group will also be a partner.
