The project will include a new six-storey patient tower, a three-floor addition to the existing four-story Mayo Clinic Building; a new three-story building to house an expanded Emergency and other departments; expanded patient and infrastructure space; and additional parking, according to a recent press release.
The campus has undergone essential growth over the last five years to support those with complex healthcare conditions, leading to boost in number of specialisms, such as cardiovascular diseases and neurosurgery, as well as new technologies which have been bought to the fore.
The organisation’s investments have been the development of its Cancer Center, as well as the launch of the first proton beam therapy programme in the region. It is also responsible for housing one of the largest organ transplant programmes across the US.
