MANKATO, Minn. — Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato is investing over $10 million to build a new outpatient radiology facility at Madison East in Mankato and will rebrand the location Mayo Clinic Health System ― Madison East Health Center.
The new space will include upgraded equipment for X-ray, computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography and computed tomography (PET-CT), and two magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines. The facility is expected to open January 2022.
"Demand for radiology and advanced imaging services has increased dramatically, and the development of an outpatient radiology facility will ensure that we are able to meet both current and future demand for these services," says James Hebl, M.D., regional vice president, Southwest Minnesota Region, Mayo Clinic Health System. "The facility will allow us to provide timely and efficient care while decreasing the cost of care to patients."
Today, most outpatient radiology services are performed at the Mankato hospital. The off-campus radiology facility at Madison East will allow hospital staff to focus resources on Emergency Department and hospital inpatients, as well as those with more complex medical needs.
In addition to the new radiology facility, the project will include significant upgrades to the Madison East building exterior, including the entrance and building facade. The on-site Mayo Clinic Store also will be significantly expanded.
