St. Alexius Medical Center in Bismarck announced today its decision to build a new state-of-the-art 67,575 square foot medical plaza in Minot, ND. According to Gary P. Miller, president and CEO of St. Alexius, the time is right to expand the presence of St. Alexius in Minot. “Increasing demands for our services compelled us to move forward with our plans. This is the next step in providing service to the community.” The future site for facility is at the intersection of Landmark Circle and 21st Ave NW near the US Highway 83 Bypass.
“The two story facility will feature 40 primary care and 20 specialty care exam rooms, as well as plans for a same day surgical center,” says Sister Nancy Miller, president of St. Alexius’ Board of Directors. “In addition, the plaza will provide imaging (diagnostic radiology, MRIs, CTs, ultrasound, mammography and Dexa Scan), physical therapy and laboratory services.” For the convenience of patients the plaza will also contain a retail pharmacy.”
“This is a monumental day for St. Alexius Medical Center and for people in the Minot region,” says St. Alexius’ Board Chair, John Giese. “We look forward to serving the community for many years to come.”
The cost for the new building is estimated at $19 million dollars. The projected opening of the medical plaza is the summer of 2015.
