Campus renovation announced for CRMC in Crosby
Cuyuna Regional Medical Center (CRMC) in Crosby is planning a major renovation to its medical campus over the next two years. The expansion plan is coordinated with the expansion of CRMC services in Baxter through a new outpatient clinic and will provide additional capacity to meet the growing demand for CRMC services in the region. CRMC continues to experience growth as a regional center of excellence because of the scope and quality of services provided by the physicians, strategic partnerships and staff. The organization has grown over 50 percent in the last three years and recently integrated with many local physicians. The expansion will include new operating rooms, additional surgical and primary care clinic space and enhanced parking for visitors, patients and staff. The expansion plan developed over the last year through an intensive review process initiated by the board, staff and physicians.
The initial phase of the project is expected to begin this summer with the addition of 185 parking spaces for visitors, patients and staff at the east end of the campus. Indoor renovation of 40,000 square feet is scheduled to begin in February 2014 with the development of seven new state of the art operating room suites in the lower level that will expand CRMC’s surgery capacity by 45 percent. The operating room suite construction is anticipated to take one year to complete. When completed, the current operating area will be remodeled into a surgical clinic. This will provide additional clinic exam space for surgeons and visiting specialists, freeing up additional space for primary care. Most of the construction will be out of the public view and cause very little disruption to current services. The renovations will offer convenient access from the front entrance of the campus to clinic services for both primary care and surgical physicians, along with lab and radiology services. The plan also includes the development of a new building at the north end of the campus for CRMC’s financial and health information services that employ approximately 70 people.
CRMC’s most recent building project to the Crosby campus broke ground in 2005 and resulted in a 70,000 square foot addition and renovation. This project created an all new inpatient unit with private rooms, expanded areas for ICU and birthing, a new main entrance, expanded on-site retail pharmacy and more.
“When CRMC expanded in 2005, the medical campus leaders knew additional renovations and expansion would be on the horizon as the demand for healthcare evolved and patient needs changed, and building plans were designed with that in mind. This renovation melds our existing services with what we know about the future of healthcare in way that will accommodate our patients with the best possible care, and the best access to the services they need,” said John Solheim, CEO of CRMC.
CRMC has provided healthcare to the region for nearly 50 years. More than 900 physicians, nurses, health care professionals and support staff work together to provide patients and their families with positive, proactive, patient focused, and family centered care. The organization is home to over 40 primary care and specialty physicians. An outpatient clinic is located in Longville, a Baxter outpatient clinic is expected to open in late 2013, and CRMC’s main campus is in Crosby.
