Ground was broken in January on the new Cooper Green hospital building, which will replace the now-demolished hospital (originally called Mercy Hospital).

According to UAB, Cooper Green Mercy Health will include several new amenities:

  • An expanded rehabilitation suite featuring an outdoor section dedicated to developing outdoor skills such as navigating curbs and various ground surfaces
  • A phlebotomy and injection clinic that will streamline laboratory visits and improve the process of vaccinations
  • New magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine 
  • Clinic areas will be designed to support team-based, multidisciplinary care, making clinic visits more centralized for the comfort of the patients
  • Facility will incorporate natural light throughout the building in stairwells and waiting areas 
  • Gift shop and food service options

Brasfield & Gorrie is the lead contractor on this project.
