Patient & Visitor Information
The University of Minnesota Clinics and Surgery Center is a new, 342,000-square-foot care facility that opened in February 2016 on the East Bank of the University of Minnesota Medical Center campus. The five-floor facility was designed and developed around the twin principles of innovation and accessibility. To meet that vision, we offer expanded clinic hours and leverage state-of-the-art technology to improve the patient experience. During your visit to the Clinics and Surgery Center, your care is coordinated seamlessly across multiple specialties and your treatment is led by our highly skilled, collaborative care teams.
Inside the Clinics and Surgery CenterThe center houses 37 adult medical specialties, ranging from primary care to neurology to cardiology. In addition to these clinics, the center also includes the following facilities or features:
- An Ambulatory Surgery and Procedure Center
- A retail pharmacy
- Imaging services, including interventional radiology and mammography
- A café with a full service menu for patients and visitors
- 171 spacious exam rooms
- 10 operating rooms in our Ambulatory Surgery and Procedure Center—six of which will be open on day 1—where surgeons can provide surgery for healthy patients who could then be discharged the same day of their procedure.
- 6 procedure rooms, for patients who need minor surgeries or procedures requiring local anesthetic or conscious IV sedation. Examples include vein ablations, cataract procedures and more.
Care ConnectIn the Clinics and Surgery center, our Care Connect system helps care teams easily find patients and each other. Care Connect provides a better staff and patient experience by reducing wait times, and helps us to deliver more personalized care. Patients and staff are asked to wear a Care Badge that helps us know their location within the Clinics and Surgery Center. You will receive a Care Badge at check-in to wear during your entire visit. When your care provider is ready to see you, the badge will allow one of our staff members to find you and bring you to the appropriate location for your appointment. Care Connect reduces patient wait times by alerting clinic staff if a patient has been waiting too long at any point during the visit. During your visit to the Clinics and Surgery Center, you may need to access care at multiple locations within the building. For example, a patient who visits our Orthopaedic Clinic on the fourth floor may need additional CTI or MRI imaging, which is located on the first floor. With Care Connect, our care teams can keep an eye on your progress and be ready for you each step of the way.
Fostering medical innovationClinical research is core to our mission and sets our care apart. The Clinics and Surgery Center was designed to accommodate research, and we hope the facility will help us engage you in the process of innovation and discovery. University of Minnesota’s StudyFinder is a one-stop shop that allows our patients to look up any eligible clinical trials and connect with our research teams. Patients are able to access this tool in Discovery Bars stationed throughout the Clinics and Surgery Center. Be sure to check out our video monitors in the building for news about new research advancements. Don’t worry, our research teams work seamlessly with our care teams to ensure that your experience, should you choose to participate in a research study, is as smooth and convenient as possible.
