A VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL EXPANSION
Mayo Clinic Mankato Hospital Surgery Suite Renovation and Expansion further improves the health system’s ability to provide state-of-the-art healthcare services and improve the patient experience. The project involved vertical and horizontal additions adjacent to five existing structures with five different vintages and structural systems, including cast-in-place concrete and steel. The renovation reimagined a storage space into a new surgical suite with eight operating rooms built on top of an existing emergency room. A new patient “hub” area aids in patient/public circulation and is provisioned for future expansion, based on MBJ’s study and retrofit for three future additional stories.
