Allina Health Surgical and Critical Care Building

BUILDING THE FUTURE OF CARE

As part of Abbott Northwestern Hospital’s Campus Revitalization and Allina Health's commitment to delivering whole-person care, the healthcare system is investing in a new Surgical and Critical Care Building. The 10-story, 575,000-square-foot facility will provide state-of-the-art critical care for the community, replacing the hospital’s existing operating rooms and creating new care environments for patients, visitors, and staff. The new facility will be LEED-certified in alignment with Allina Health’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

The new bed tower will be constructed in the middle of the active Abbott Northwestern Hospital campus in south Minneapolis. One wing of the building will replace an existing four-story parking ramp on 10th Avenue. Maintaining access to care for patients, staff, and visitors is critical to the success of this project. Detailed planning and communications for all stakeholders and the community is paramount. 

Construction on the enabling work started spring 2023, with plans to welcome the facility's first patient in 2026. 

The facility includes

  • 1 year of skyways, connectors, and demolition 

  • 2.5 years of bed tower construction 

  • 1 year of site work and interior remodeling of existing spaces 

  • 9 stories, 30 operating rooms, patient rooms, pre/post operation rooms, Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), and a new entrance lobby 

  • Pushing the limits on technology: Interactive Patient Rooms, Super-Clean ORs, robots for supply distribution 

  • 280,000 self-perform work hours 

“Allina Health has a long history partnering with Mortenson to build and bring much-needed assets into the communities we serve. Our two organizations are closely aligned in our commitment to the Minneapolis community, and we are extremely excited to be partnering with Mortenson on a project of such magnitude."
