CentraCare Health Long Prairie hosted a ceremonial groundbreaking event on May 9, 2016. This marks the official start of an innovative model of health care that will soon be delivered in Central Minnesota. The new $30.8 million medical campus will replace the existing 60 year old facility, scheduled to open in 2017. 

The new model of health care will better serve the nearly 24,000 regional residents with a focus on outpatient care rather than inpatient stays, better access to additional specialists and privacy that meets today’s standards. The new state-of-the-art facility, designed by HGA Architects will include:

  • 65,000-square-foot clinic and hospital facility
  • 3 clinic procedure rooms 
  • 12 private patient rooms for inpatient and outpatient services
  • 2 labor, delivery, and recovery suites
  • 2 operating suites
  • Distinct and inviting clinic and emergency entrances
  • Decentralized nursing stations to enhance efficiency and improve patient monitoring
