Talking Trinity: Trinity breaks more ground this week

A Breaking More Ground Ceremony for a new hetalthcare campus and medical district in Minot will be held Thursday.

The groundbreaking for the new Trinity Health Healthcare Campus and Medical District will be at the northwest corner of the new healthcare campus and medical district property from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, followed by a community picnic.

The Trinity Health Healthcare Campus and Medical District will be a six-story, 790,000-square-foot, full-service hospital and physicians pavilion.

People attending the ceremony are asked to enter on the north side of 37th Ave.

TWG, an architectural, engineering and consulting firm based in Indiana is working with Yates/Northwest Contracting construction to build the healthcare campus and medical district.

Services to be offered at the new hospital will include emergency care surgery, labor and delivery imaging and diagnostics, endoscopy, interventional procedures, a cath lab and a pharmacy.

The hospital will include 31 emergency care exam rooms, 11 operating rooms, one open heart hybrid room, one surgical hybrid room, two cath lab/interventional radiology rooms, central sterile processing, 22 bed post anesthesia care unit, four endoscopy/procedure rooms, 12 labor and delivery rooms, three antepartum rooms, 16 postpartum rooms, 32 medical beds, nine surgical beds, 10 pediatric beds, 25 orthopedic/sciences beds, 20 intensive care unit beds, 11 progressive care unit beds, 22 ICU beds, 10 bassinets, 40 mental health beds, 20 rehab beds, and 12 flex rooms.

All patient rooms will be private and grouped in sets of 16. The central corridor will allow for an “on stage/off stage” designed to contain noise from support spaces. A family lounge will be located on each of the patient floors. The building will have extensive natural light and artwork displayed throughout it.

Patient rooms will be conversion reads to adapt to a number of acuity levels.

The hospital’s entrance will be oriented to the east so that many of the patient rooms will have a northeast and northwest solar orientation. This entrance location will also provide access to the hospital from 37th Ave. for public and emergency vehicles.

Construction is expected to be completed in spring 2021.

“This healthcare campus and medical district building will be an important addition to our community and the region-at-large and will provide a convenient location for patients to visit their physician or obtain health care services,” said John M. Kutch, president and CEO.

“This healthcare campus and medical district will provide patients with a first-class location to receive the highest quality care in the region,” said Jeff Sather, chief of staff at Trinity Health. “The direct connection to the new hospital will benefit both the healthcare providers and patients.”

The replacement hospital campus and medical district construction process began in May 2018 on 42 of the more than 70 acres in southwest Minot off of 37th Ave.

During the initial planning and construction phases of the new campus, physicians, nurses and hospital leaders were able to get a sneak peek of their future space through virtual tours set up by the project architect, TEG. Being virtually immersed in the space allowed hospital staff to recognize potential issues and make the appropriate design changes, ensuring the final product would optimize efficiency and patient flow.

Trinity Health plans to celebrate milestones during the construction process, including a topping out ceremony in 2019, commemorating the placement of the highest steel beam that will be signed by more than 2,000 people including board members, medical staff, construction crew members, and community leaders. Once completed, the healthcare campus and medical district will centralize care in the community of Minot, providing a local option for patents seeking state-of-the-art comprehensive treatment.

“Once complete, there should be absolutely no reason anyone has to leave this area for care,” said Patrick Holien, chairman of the board at Trinity Health.
