The Cooper Green Mercy Health Services Authority has received approval from the board of trustees of the University of Alabama System to move forward with plans to replace the current building with a state-of-the-art medical clinic. Construction of the building should begin this winter. It will be built on the site of the former Cooper Green parking deck, which was demolished earlier this year.

The new five-story building will be 207,000 square feet with an overall estimated cost of $120 million. The general contractor on the project is Brasfield & Gorrie. The architect is Gresham Smith.

Under an agreement between Jefferson County and the UAB Health System, the Cooper Green Mercy Health Services Authority was created in April 2020 to manage Cooper Green. The authority will construct a modern and improved facility to replace the current building, which dates to the early 1970s. The current building is costly to maintain and no longer suited to the efficient delivery of modern ambulatory health care, officials said.
