Lake View Hospital in Two Harbors, Minnesota, celebrated the start of a major campus expansion project with a ground-breaking ceremony May 7.
The $15 million project will connect the hospital to Lake View Medical Clinic and Lake View Pharmacy. When completed, it will allow for a new specialty care outreach space, expanded lab services and an expanded inpatient pharmacy to support infusion therapy services. The expansion will also feature a community gathering space with room for up to 90 people. The space can be used for community health education, wellness activities related to population health meetings for area organizations, leadership development, yoga classes and more.
The 14-month project was designed by architect BWBR and is being built by Kraus-Anderson Construction Company. The expansion also creates a centralized entrance, adds more room for future urgent care, and will allow for expanded surgical and procedural care space. Once it is complete, the expansion will improve efficiency and enhance the patient experience.
Construction on the 38,000 square-foot, two story building that will connect the Hospital and Clinic is expected to be completed in the summer of 2020.
