Inspira Health celebrated the installation of the final steel beam for its new Woodbury Campus health center March 3.
The $71 million redevelopment project will be the new home for Inspira’s satellite emergency department and inpatient behavioral health program.
The campus will also include: a recent consolidation of services into a newly remodeled medical office building and family medicine center; the construction of a new, state-of-the-art facility that will house a 24,900-square-foot, 19-bed satellite emergency department and a 21,500-square-foot, 20-bed inpatient behavioral health center; and a new EMS station.
The multi-phased, multi-year construction and redevelopment project got underway last November at the Woodbury campus.
Construction of this new building is expected to be completed in the first quarter of next year.
In a statement, Warren Moore, executive vice president and chief operating officer, said that for more than five years, Inspira Health has been collaborating with county and city leaders to explore ideas and create plans for redeveloping the campus to benefit the community.
“This construction milestone signifies true progress in our collective efforts,” said Moore.
He added that by moving the satellite emergency department and inpatient behavioral health program to a brand-new facility, Inspira will be better able to meeting the community’s growing health needs.
“Our community depends on us, and we want those we serve to know that we have the facilities, resources and expertise to provide them with high-quality and compassionate care when they need it most,” said Moore.
