April 14, 2014
Posted In: Community Health Centers, MOSDOH, University Headlines

KIRKSVILLE, Mo. – A.T. Still University of Health Sciences (ATSU) has contracted Musick Construction as its partner for building the University’s new St. Louis dental education and oral health clinic for the Missouri School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ATSU-MOSDOH). Musick Construction is a St. Louis-based general contractor with more than 100 years of experience in the construction industry as a family-owned business.

“ATSU is pleased to work with Musick Construction on this important project. Improving lives of Missourians through increased access to oral healthcare and education are goals important to ATSU, Grace Hill Health Centers, and Musick Construction,” said ATSU President Craig M. Phelps, DO, ’84.

The new 79,000-square-foot building, designed by Cannon Design, will be located at the intersection of Truman Parkway and Park Avenue, a short distance east of La Fayette Square. The new facility is part of the City Hospital redevelopment effort.

“Musick Construction is honored to participate in the development of ATSU’s dental clinic in St. Louis. We are certain ATSU-MOSDOH will be one of the nation’s preeminent dental schools and an asset to the St. Louis community, as well as the state of Missouri and the entire Midwest region at large,” said Don C. Musick, III, CEO, Musick Construction Co.

After spending two years on the Kirksville, Mo., campus, ATSU-MOSDOH students will relocate to St. Louis for third-year and fourth-year clinical experiences at the newly constructed clinic operated in partnership with Grace Hill Health Centers Inc. (GHHC). Under faculty supervision, students will deliver care to a full spectrum of patients including children, adults, geriatric patients, the disabled, the homeless, and the uninsured. Students will see approximately 9,400 active patients annually resulting in more than 39,200 annual encounters.

ATSU-MOSDOH and GHHC will employ approximately 95 professionals at the clinic who will provide needed oral health services and instruct dental students. The groundbreaking ceremony will take place Friday, April 25, 2014.
