#2 — Trinity breaks more ground; celebrates future medical complex at construction site

Jill Schramm/MDN Congressman Kevin Cramer, speaking at the “Breaking More Ground” ceremony held in September, commends Trinity and Minot that they “would endeavor something as courageous and big as you are doing today.”

Construction started in 2018 on Trinity Health’s future regional health facility.The replacement hospital campus and medical district construction process began in May 2018 on 42 of the more than 70 acres in southwest Minot. The site is west of the Minot Family YMCA along 37th Avenue SW.

In September Trinity Health celebrated its future regional health facility with a “Breaking More Ground” event.

The new Trinity Health Healthcare Campus and Medical District will be a 970,000-square-foot full-service hospital, medical office and other building space.

President/CEO John Kutch called the occasion an exciting day for the future of Trinity Heath, the Minot community and northwestern North Dakota, according to a Trinity news release. “This project is not really about building or buildings. It is about people. It’s about fulfilling our mission to improve the health of the people, the community, and the region we serve. This represents our vision, our people, and our future. It also embodies Trinity Health’s commitment to provide the highest quality healthcare to the people who entrust their care to us.”

Congressman Kevin Cramer, who spoke at the September event, commended Trinity and Minot that they “would endeavor something as courageous and big as you are doing today.”

Trinity Board Chairman Patrick Holien said it is a “large part of Trinity’s strategic plan to be the primary health-care provider for northwest North Dakota, not just for today and tomorrow but a long ways into the future.”

The new hospital will provide a wide range of healthcare services including 200-plus private rooms, state-of-the-art surgical suites, advanced cardiac, neurosurgical and orthopedic care, behavioral health section and emergency/level II trauma center with 24 treatment bays. Patient rooms will be private and grouped in sets of 16 with a family lounge on each of the patient floors.

Last fall Trinity Health received approval from the Ward County Commission to issue up to $380 million in health-care revenue bonds.

The architectural firm partnering with Trinity Health for the project is TEG Architects. Yates-Northwest Contracting, a joint venture, is managing the project’s construction.

The $350 million project is scheduled for completion in 2021. Trinity Health’s centennial will be observed in 2022.

Trinity Health also unveiled a new corporate brand identity a “living green” leaf design in the shape of a “t” with the tagline, “Making More Possible.”
