    Advancing a legacy of caring

    In 2016, Mercy Hospital Foundation launched a three-year capital campaign, “Advancing a Legacy of Caring,” to help fund growth on the Mercy Hospital campuses. The Foundation has pledged to raise $8.6 million to bring health and healing to our North Metro neighbors, friends and families. Project overview includes:

    • Combining adult inpatient mental health and addiction services onto the Unity campus and creation of Allina Health’s first all private room 40-bed adult mental health unit.
    • Major improvements to the Mercy Hospital Coon Rapids campus, including:
      • Infrastructure renovation and expansion—sterile processing facilities, kitchen, laboratory services and parking ramp.
    • Critical care renovation and expansion—intensive care unit (ICU), operating suites, pre- and post-operating areas, patient and family waiting areas, orthopedic unit and emergency department.

    Surgical care

    To better meet the needs of our community, Mercy Hospital updated their surgical services, including expanded surgical suites, pre- and post-operating areas and surgical supply storage area. By expanding our surgical suites, more types of procedures can take place in each room, and the rooms can accommodate additional robotic surgical equipment. This means more patients can have procedures done sooner with greater results. Learn more by watching the video below.

  • Mental health and addiction services

    To meet the growing need for mental health and addiction services, the Unity campus underwent a number of changes. The fourth floor, former home to the Birth Center, was renovated to create a 40-bed inpatient mental health unit, Allina Health Mental Health moved to a larger space on site, and the Emergency Department was renovated to better meet the needs of patients with mental health conditions. The 2016 Crystal Ball proceeds were dedicated to this consolidation of mental health and addiction services. Learn more by watching the video below.
