BELLEVILLE, IL (KPLR) - St. Elizabeth hospital announces plans Wednesday for a replacement hospital and renovation of the Belleville campus to transform health care in the Metro East.

Hospital leaders made the announcement to build a new state-of-the-art hospital on 114 acres of land by I-64 and Green Mount Road in St. Clair County.

The St. Elizabeth's health center in Belleville will be upgraded to offer a same day ambulatory clinic with radiology and laboratory services, physicians' offices and various therapies.
