Timco Breaks Ground on the new Shriners Hospital for Children Outpatient Clinic
On Friday, July 19th, Timco Construction, in partnership with Davis and Synergy Architecture Studio, broke ground on a new 42,000-square-foot, two-story, clinic. The new clinic will be part of the CityPlace Medical II building in Woodbury, south of Interstate 94 and east of Radio Drive. The first floor will house a pediatric orthopaedic outpatient clinic for Shriner’s Hospital for Children.
“Current health care trends, such as more outpatient-oriented care, required us to adjust our delivery model to more accurately reflect today’s environment,” said Roger Robinson, chairman of the Board of Governors for Shriners Healthcare for Children — Twin Cities. “At our new clinic location, patients will continue to receive the same high quality pediatric orthopaedic care that they have been accustomed to receiving, regardless of their ability to pay. Shriners Healthcare for Children — Twin Cities will continue our long-standing commitment to provide the best care for our patients and their families in this new facility.”
The new facility will allow Shriners Healthcare for Children to create a patient-centered environment that responds to industry trends and better meets the needs of their patients. It will also allow staff to provide a wider range of orthopaedic services in the most effective and efficient manner. Shriners Healthcare for Children will continue to serve families from a seven-state service area. Outpatient care will continue at the Shriners facility in Minneapolis until the new clinic opens the summer of 2020.
Shriners Healthcare for Children — Twin Cities is part of the Shriners Hospitals for Children health care system. It has been located on East River Parkway in Minneapolis since 1923 and solely focuses on orthopedic needs. In addition to their Twin Cities clinic, Shriners Hospitals for Children has 22 other locations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The nonprofit provides specialty care for children, conducts research and offers training for medical professionals.
