In a  day when hospitals are facing increasing financial burden, it's nice to know that one facility is growing.  I guess mergers give you a lot of purchasing power  (And a 10 meeeeeeellllioin dollar donation can't hurt either!) 

According to an article in the Troy Record, St Peters Health Partners has broken ground on a $99 million dollar facility in Troy.  It will be a pavilion that is  part of  Samaritan Hospital.

It will no doubt  be named the Medicus building, and not because it containms  part of the word "medical'.  95 year old Heinrich Medicus made a record breaking $10 million dollar donation. 

This is SO GREAT for our area.  I guess we all owe him a debt of gratitude.  You never know when any of us are going to need St Peters' services.  Thank you, Heinrich.  That was quite a maneuver.  (Which I guess would make it the ---wait for it----Heinrich Maneuver.   Hit the rimshot)
