Project Description

Doster Construction Company is the construction manager on a $20 million expansion and modernization of the 25-bed Ferrell Hospital in Eldorado, Illinois.

The construction added 55,000 square feet of space to the existing hospital and modernized the existing 17,400 square feet. A new emergency department was created, along with new diagnostic imaging, laboratory, phlebotomy, chemotherapy, surgical and ambulatory care unit spaces. New spaces for the front lobby, a front canopy, the cafeteria and registration were also completed.

“Ferrell Hospital, since our beginning in 1925, has been here to meet the health care needs of our community,” said Alisa Coleman, CEO of Ferrell Hospital. “This expansion and modernization will enhance our ability to provide quality emergency, surgical and hospital-based care to patients here in southeastern Illinois, keeping them close to home.”
