Mayo Clinic to spend $217M on Saint Marys construction

Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic will spend $217 million on renovations to its Rochester-based Saint Marys campus to address growing patient numbers and enhance productivity, according to a Star Tribune report. 

The projects include construction of more private patient rooms and additional space for cardiovascular disease patients, as well as expanded space for rehabilitation services and a renovated newborn intensive care unit, the report states.

Robert Cima, MD, medical director for Saint Marys, told the publication the campus "anticipate[s] continued growth in patient visits." He added the construction is "a commitment to providing access to as many patients as possible."

Saint Marys houses roughly 1,000 inpatient beds and 80 operating suites, according to the report.

The Saint Marys renovation is one of several projects the clinic is pursuing. Last month, Mayo Clinic unveiled a $70 million hospital surgical suite expansion at its Mankato, Minn., location. Mayo Clinic is also planning a $70.5 million expansion of its Florida hospital.
