The Mayo Clinic will double its presence in downtown Minneapolis when it completes work on a 16,000 square-foot addition to its sports medicine facility. According to a Mayo clinic news release, the expansion will include “15 new patient exam rooms; a biomechanics and movement analysis laboratory for sports medicine research; an additional suite for musculoskeletal ultrasound and regenerative medicine procedures; an advanced X-ray system, and a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry system to measure bone density and body composition.”
Mayo Clinic writer Rhoda Madson told Twin Cities Business writer Sam Schaust that the final cost of the project and Mayo’s staffing needs are still being determined. Mayo staffers expect that construction of the new space will be completed by the end of the year.
“This expansion allows us to serve our patients better by tapping Mayo Clinic’s expertise, cutting-edge technology, research and educational capabilities,” said Edward Laskowski, M.D., co-director of Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine, in a statement.
