Hennepin County Medical Center
Ambulatory Outpatient Specialty Center
Reorganizing nearly two million square feet to offer centralized and accessible care for people who need convenient access to a doctor, same day surgery, or cancer treatment, Hennepin County Medical Center will open a new Ambulatory Outpatient Services Center that consolidates over 40 primary and specialty clinics currently spread across 9 buildings. The 377,000-square-foot building marks the biggest expansion in the history for Minneapolis/Saint Paul’s largest teaching hospital.
The AOSC building will include six floors of clinics and services, two levels of underground pay parking with 221-stalls for patients and family. The building will house primary, specialty care and physical and occupational therapy. As well as a same day surgery center with five operating rooms, and four GI/endoscopy rooms. The clinic will also be home to a Cancer Center with Radiation Therapy, Outpatient Imaging Center, Women’s Imaging, and skyway and tunnel connections to the rest of the HCMC campus.
The AOSC will be housed next door to Minnesota’s first Level I Trauma Center, Minnesota’s largest emergency department and busiest trauma center. In addition to the new facilities, BWBR also designed a new, second helistop located on top of the building housing the HCMC emergency department, operating rooms, and intensive care units, directly across the street from where the Ambulatory Outpatient Specialty Center will stand. The new helistop doubles the capacity to receive trauma and critical care patients by air and reduces transport time into the hospital.
