Luther Building Fifth Floor
The lights are on!
Welcome to the fifth floor of the Luther Building, located on the Luther Campus at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire. This 51,000-square-foot hospital floor was made possible by community members and grateful patients with contributions totaling $19 million over the last 30 years. Patients began receiving care on the new floor in January 2017.
