Project Highlight | MCHS Surgical Renovation

KENDELL is delighted to work with Boldt Construction on the Surgical Suite Expansion at Mayo Clinic Health System Mankato.  Construction for the MCHS upgrade is taking place over the course of a couple years, taking six phases to complete. Renovations are expected to complete near the end of 2018.

The $65 million project’s focus is to better serve surgical patients. Some parts of the current facility date back to the 1976 facility; the upgrade to a more current space is going to help modernize patient care. According to reports by KEYC, “The expansion will include 14 operating rooms, a sterile processing department, an interventional pain medicine procedural room, a new gastrointestinal endoscopy center and 43 private pre and postoperative patient rooms that Dr. Mike Kendrick, MCHS Chair of Surgical Facilities, says is a crucial factor when it comes to patient care.”

KENDELL is proud to be a part of such an important upgrade to MCHS that’s going to benefit so many patients. The expansion includes 214 Red Oak veneer wood doors from VT Industries. We also partnered with Curries for 199 hollow metal frames and 26 hollow metal doors. Door hardware includes BEST 9k cylindrical and 45H mortise locks. The door hardware also includes LCN door closers, Von Duprin 98 and 94 series exit devices and Rockwood flat goods.

The KENDELL staff working on the MCHS Surgical Renovation includes Tim Bratsch (Project Manager), Jeremiah Stern (Estimator) and Rod Kiewiet (Engineer).

We can’t wait to see the finished expansion that’s going to benefit so many patients!
