BROOKLYN PARK, Minn.—After breaking ground in August 2022, Ryan Companies US, Inc. announces the completion of PrairieCare’s youth and young adult psychiatric inpatient hospital expansion. The project finished three weeks ahead of schedule.

“We remain in a national mental health crisis that is disproportionately affecting youth, and this much needed expansion will address the critical needs of hundreds of families in Minnesota each year,” said Todd Archbold, CEO of PrairieCare. “PrairieCare was proud to partner with Ryan Companies on another successful project, completed ahead of schedule in response to the increased demand for inpatient psychiatric care.”

The nearly 30,000-square-foot expansion includes an additional 30 inpatient beds, activity and therapy spaces, allowing PrairieCare to serve an additional 1,000 youth and young adults each year. This marks the largest increase of psychiatric beds for youth in the state in decades. The newly expanded hospital is adjacent to 610 Medical Center, the two-story medical office building which houses PrairieCare, PrairieCare Medical Group, and the PrairieCare Foundation. 610 Medical Center was developed and built by Ryan, and designed by Ryan A+E, Inc.

“More than six years after celebrating the grand opening of 610 Medical Center with PrairieCare, we are absolutely thrilled to be celebrating again with their new, inpatient expansion,” said Tony Barranco, North region president, Ryan Companies. “The impact these additional beds will have for Minnesota youth and young adults will be profound and, we are so proud to be part of this fantastic project.”

The grand opening ceremony took place Sept. 20, which included a ribbon cutting and tour.

Ryan built the expansion. Pope Architects served as the architect and interior designer for the project.

The PrairieCare expansion marks more than 1,000,000 square feet built by Ryan in Brooklyn Park since 2016. Other projects Ryan constructed in the area include Kurita Water Industries and 610 Zane East & West.
