Minnesota Community Debuts New Specialty Health Center

By HCO Staff

LAKEVILLE, Minn.—Allina Health can now serve patients with expanded care offerings and provide coordinated care in the Twin Cities south metro through the opening of its new Lakeville Specialty Center. A ribbon-cutting event was held on May 16 and offered tours of the new building. Additionally, in recognition of Allina Health’s position as the Official Health Care Provider of Minnesota United FC, the event also included a special appearance by MNUFC players.

The 100,000-square-foot center includes more than 10 specialty services, including heart care, dermatology, orthopedics, women’s health and more. Patients can find peace of mind when unexpected illnesses and injuries happen by visiting the center’s urgent care, which includes Allina Health’s first orthopedic urgent care.

“We understand people prefer care close to home and that most of us choose to avoid the hospital setting when possible,” said Bill Evans, Vice President of Ambulatory Operations for Allina Health. “The Allina Health Lakeville Specialty Center is the result of the careful planning of many colleagues and community partners who recognize the importance of adapting to changing health care needs and working together to create options which better serve our patients.”

Wold Architects and Engineers, a St. Paul-based architectural and engineering firm with extensive healthcare design expertise, led the design for many of the Allina Health specialty clinic spaces, including areas to support dermatology, imaging, Mental Health Integration (MHI), orthopedics, rheumatology and more.

“We are honored to have been a part of this project and are grateful for our ongoing partnership with Allina Health,” said Andrew Jordan, Principal at Wold Architects and Engineers. “We’re proud we could help bring these new clinic spaces to life and look forward to seeing the positive impact the new center will have on the community in Lakeville for many years to come.”
