  • Campus Replacement Project

Operating 326 beds on two campuses in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota embarked on a multi-year initiative to expand and modernize both campuses. The plan included placing all hospital beds in Minneapolis and Saint Paul in private rooms with sleep-in space for parents, modernizing the operating rooms, and expanding emergency departments.

On the Minneapolis campus, Korbel’s scope of work began early in 2008, and carried through to 2010. The Minneapolis Campus project also includes an ambulatory care center containing hematology/ oncology, morgue, pharmacy, radiology, rehabilitation, and pediatric specialty clinics, an expanded neonatal intensive care unit with a Ronald McDonald House® that is now housed inside the hospital. After many months of working with Children’s on the Minneapolis campus project, Korbel was awarded the scope of work on the Saint Paul campus in late 2008.

The Saint Paul campus project elements included: Surgery, PACU and Pre/Post-Op, Sterile Processing, an Emergency Department, and Inpatient Nursing Units, including Epilepsy Care. The total cost of the combined projects was $300 million. Korbel Associates per-formed an equipment inventory and provided equipment planning services through the completion of construction documents for both the Minneapolis and Saint Paul campuses. Korbel’s scope also included equipment placement drawings.
