Foundation gives $1M to help build St. Clair Hospital new outpatient center

The six-floor outpatient center that is being built at St. Clair Hospital is getting a $1 million grant from the Richard King Mellon Foundation.

The grant will help build the $142 million Dunlap Family Outpatient Center, which will include preop and postop suites, diagnostics and physician offices, and will be connected on two floors to St. Clair Hospital in Mt. Lebanon. The award-winning independent hospital, with 2,300 employees, is meeting patient demand with the new center.

The Richard King Mellon Foundation’s grant will be part of $28 million in grants and other support that has been raised to help fund the construction of the center, which also included the reconfiguration of a nearby street. The rest will be funded by tax-exempt bonds and hospital earnings.
