Clinic and Specialty Center – Maple Grove
Park Nicollet’s new Maple Grove Clinic and Specialty Center exemplifies the modern healthcare facility sought by today’s consumers, combining the expertise of primary and specialty care with a same-day surgery center.
Constructed on a high-profile site along two major highway corridors, the challenge was to create a regional medical center for 60 clinicians and 300 employees that would be the new face of an existing, 15-year-old facility, remodeled to provide state-of-the-art ambulatory surgical services. The center seamlessly achieves that goal, creating a facility that marries an affiliated orthopedic acute injury clinic with highly respected outpatient care, pediatric urgent care, and the outpatient surgery center in a rapidly growing medical corridor in the metropolitan region.
Medical home principles drove many of the design strategies: serving patients in a friendly, effective manner; shaping an environment that promotes team care; maximizing square footage for patient and families while accommodating staff, supplies; and creating an environment that wraps the patient in comprehensive and holistic care, elevating spaces beyond routine exams. Demountable partitions, sliding doors, and systems furnishing are integral to achieving care measures without growing the size of care areas.

Great health care doesn’t happen by accident. It’s the result of dedication and innovation — and that necessitates more than knowledge and compassion.
