Exciting things are about to get underway at Mayo Clinic Health System in Cannon Falls. Just after two years of opening the doors to a brand new, state-of-the-art medical facility, the staff, patients and community in Cannon Falls will soon benefit from the medical center’s expansion of services.
Donated funds have been designated for this project with the intent to build out the existing shell space on the main level. A retail pharmacy, optical shop and wellness center are scheduled to open in the spring of 2017. In the new space, patients can fill medications, purchase eyewear and utilize the fitness centers’ new equipment. Conversations are currently taking place to work out the details, such as hours of operation and staffing, for each of the new services.
“We are so fortunate to have donated funds along with continued community support which will enable us to proceed with this project,” says Glenn Christian, operations manager at Mayo Clinic Health System in Cannon Falls. “Early on we recognized the need for these additional services within our community and are excited to have the opportunity to offer them to our staff, patients and the public.”
The construction is scheduled to start in mid-November. Further details on the project will be shared as construction progresses. A grand opening celebration of the new space and services will be scheduled closer to the completion date.
