Mayo Clinic Health System Mankato announces a hospital expansion project that will add more than 100 patient beds to the facility.
In a release, the healthcare provider says it will expand and modernize its Mankato hospital by adding three new floors to an existing two story building on the campus. The new structure will feature 121 additional hospital beds, a three floor vertical expansion atop the Emergency Department, Cancer Center and Specialty Clinic foyer, a new and expanded Intensive Care Unit and Progressive Care Unit, a new Medical-Surgical Unit and a new Family Birth Center.
According to Mayo, once complete, technological advancements within the new hospital will equip staff with the latest tools to cure, connect and transform community health care such as telehealth, digital technology and artificial intelligence, along with design elements and efficiencies to support innovative care models and enhance the patient and staff experience.
Construction is expected to begin this spring and will be completed in early 2024.
