Representatives from Park Nicollet announced May 1 that it has plans to expand it services to the Maple Grove area with the construction of a new outpatient regional center.
The planned 115,000-square-foot facility will improve care coordination and experience for patients by bringing a wide variety of primary care, specialty care, and ambulatory surgical services together under one roof.
“Patients want access to primary and specialty care services in one convenient location where care teams are working together to make it easy for them. This model is an opportunity to improve health, experience, and affordability for patients,” said David Abelson, M.D., president of Park Nicollet.
The regional center will consist of a newly constructed three story medical building joined to Park Nicollet’s existing clinic located at 15800 95th Ave. N. in Maple Grove. The new building will house specialty clinics, primary care and outpatient diagnostic services. The existing building will be converted to an ambulatory surgery and endoscopy center, allowing these services to be offered in Maple Grove for the first time.
In addition to ambulatory surgery and endoscopy, the regional center expands Park Nicollet’s primary and specialty care offerings in Maple Grove and includes:
• Expanded orthopaedics and musculoskeletal clinic
• Extensive dermatology practice
• Comprehensive urgent care
• Advanced imaging
• Oncology and rheumatology clinic with infusion center
According to Adam Bauer, Manager and Strategic Communications with HealthPartners, said the plan still needs city approval. First the plans will be brought to the Maple Grove Planning Commission on May 12. “Barring any major changes to the plans coming out of that meeting, it would go before the City Council on May 19,” he added.
Park Nicollet will break ground on the $48 million project this summer. Completion of the new medical building is projected for late 2015, with the ambulatory surgery and endoscopy center slated to open in early 2016.
