April 30 was a historic day as Trinity Health completed the transition from its 100-year-old legacy campus in downtown Minot to its new campus on the southwest edge of the city.
Fifty-nine patients from the legacy campus were moved to the new hospital in around four hours – a few hours ahead of schedule. The move began with the first patient delivered at 7:11 a.m. and concluded with the last patient arriving at the new Healthcare Campus and Medical District at 11:21 a.m.
Jeffery Sather, MD, medical director of the Emergency Trauma Center, called it a transformational day for Trinity Health, the community of Minot and the region at large.
More than 700 Trinity staff and volunteers facilitated the move, including some 14 ambulance services from around the region.
