Barnes-Jewish Hospital will open its new outpatient center on Monday.
The 12-story building at the corner of Forest Park Avenue and Euclid will bring together five existing outpatient clinics under one roof. Those include a primary care clinic, along with OB/GYN, psychiatric, surgical, and specialty clinics.
Dr. Melvin Blanchard directs the internal medicine residency program at Barnes.
Speaking at a dedication ceremony for the new center, Blanchard said Barnes' existing clinics provide care to the underinsured and underserved.
The new procedure – called transcatheter aortic valve replacement – involves replacing the aortic valve which connects the left ventricle (B) to the aorta (A). You can see a video of this in the story below.
