Minnesota Facility Plans Biggest Expansion in Its History
November 23, 2015
The Hennepin County (Minn.) Medical Center recently broke ground on its new ambulatory clinic building, marking the biggest expansion in history for The Twin City area's largest teaching hospital.
The safety-net hospital also celebrated the inauguration of its second helistop located on top of the building housing the HCMC emergency department, operating rooms, and intensive care units, directly across the street from where the ambulatory outpatient specialty center will stand.
The $220.8-million, 377,000-square-foot ambulatory clinic building will consolidate over 40 primary and specialty clinics currently spread across nine buildings. An HCMC-commissioned study determined these buildings would reach maximum occupancy in a few years, leading to the decision to build the ASOC.
