CentraCare Health — Melrose
In August 2017, CentraCare Health – Melrose officially opened its doors, capping off a remarkable 15-month construction project on a $26 million, 53,000-square-foot hospital that will serve the community for decades to come. The hospital features a new emergency department, two state-of-the-art operating rooms, two labor, delivery and recovery suites, 14 universal patient rooms, in-house MRI and a bistro, which is open to the public.
In addition to the advanced diagnostic services available at the new facility, there are also a number of special touches designed to improve the patient experience, including a healing garden and artwork throughout that captures the spirit of Central Minnesota’s natural landscape.
“Our goal for this new hospital is to provide a comfortable, healing environment for our patients,” said Gerry Gilbertson, CentraCare Health – Melrose administrator. “We offer a multitude of services for the community and we will continue to build upon our high level of care in the community and beyond.”
The medical campus also includes a 75-bed skilled nursing home, a 61-unit senior apartment building with assisted living services and a guest house for families seeking to stay close to their loved ones. Together, these services ensure the people of Melrose and the surrounding communities have access to the care they need.
