In 2010, we advanced a new vision that would transform the delivery of healthcare in our region. That day has come and construction has begun.
In partnership with medical staff and workforce, architects and engineers, and construction management firms, a new healthcare campus and medical district is going up in southwest Minot.
Construction has Resumed
Construction on Trinity Health’s new healthcare campus and medical district has resumed, effective Friday, April 26. While a portion of the site that was directly impacted by the fire is still restricted, construction activities will involve other facets of the project.
The Minot Fire Marshal had determined that the fire resulted from propane tanks reportedly leaking and eventually igniting. Structural engineers, insurance investigators, and fire officials were on site the week of April 15 assessing the situation. We expect extensive testing to be conducted on the steel structure in coming weeks. In the meantime, insurance investigators will continue to evaluate all factors in this event; a working plan and cost estimates will result from these assessments.
Trinity Health is grateful for the hard work and expertise contributed by each of these professionals during this investigation, so we can safely resume this important project. Until all assessments have been completed, Trinity Health is unable to predict the impact on the project’s timeline, but we expect to get more details in the coming weeks.
We are all excited and look forward to this state-of-the-art healthcare campus and medical district serving Minot and the entire region.
Brief Update on Construction Site
The Fire Department has completed its report on the fires that occurred at the construction site. Trinity Health is reviewing the findings of the report at this time. We can’t speculate on any estimated timeline for resuming the project, as other investigations are still ongoing. However, we can say we are eager to move the project forward and we look forward to completing the new campus for our community and region.
