Mayo Clinic hospital plans 69-bed expansion

Mayo Clinic's Mankato, Minn.-based hospital is planning a four-story, 69-bed expansion, the Mankato Free Press reported Jan. 11.

The plan also includes moving a helipad onto the roof and an addition of staff areas and public space.

The expansion would increase patient rooms from 171 to 240 and would take five years to complete.

"While the bed tower expansion is not yet approved by Mayo Clinic leadership, we are seeking zoning review and approval of project plans from the city of Mankato, as well as conducting some on-campus preparatory work, to be ready to initiate construction should all necessary approvals be secured," James Hebl, MD, regional vice president of the Southwest Minnesota region of Mayo Clinic, said in a statement cited by the Free Press.
