ST. LOUIS ( -- A brand new concept is coming to St. Louis, called a micro hospital.

The name pretty much explains the concept, as the structure would be a small hospital located in an area where normal facilities wouldn’t fit.

The proposal is a 80,000 square foot hospital, located at the corner of Locust and 15th Streets.

It's meant to bridge a gap between urgent cares and regional hospitals like Barnes Jewish Hospital.
