Mayo Clinic submits preliminary plans for Wisconsin medical facility

Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic submitted preliminary plans Thursday to construct a facility in Hudson, Wis., which is about 30 miles east of Minneapolis, reports the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.

According to the permit application, the proposed 100,000-square-foot facility would house between 60 and 75 clinic rooms, six to eight operating rooms, four procedure suites and two rooms dedicated to overnight stays. It would offer primary care, specialty care and outpatient surgery services.

Mayo Clinic did not disclose a cost estimate for the facility, but called it a "significant investment." The system also said the plans are subject to change.

"Mayo Clinic Health System is committed to providing quality healthcare services locally, with access to additional specialty services through Mayo Clinic Health System and Mayo Clinic," said Michael Morrey, Mayo Clinic Health System's regional chair of administration, according to the Minneapolis/ St. Paul Business Journal.

The Hudson planning commission is expected to vote on the plan Feb. 22, according to the Post Bulletin.

Hudson is about 18 miles from St. Paul, Minn., and about 30 miles from Minneapolis. A facility in this location could make the health system more competitive in the Twin Cities region.

In western Wisconsin, Bloomington, Minn.-based HealthPartners would be a competitor of the proposed facility because it owns Hudson Hospital and is affiliated with several other medical groups in the area.
