    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. Proceeds from the 2017 Crystal Ball were dedicated to the renovation of the ICU at Mercy Hospital. Learn more about these renovations and the work being done in the ICU with the video below.

    The above improvements to the campuses will improve patients’ ability to make appointments and access specialty services, help those in our community who need more effective mental health care and will give Mercy Hospital more flexibility to respond to changing community needs as our communities continue to grow.

    The Mother Baby Center at Mercy Hospital

    The Mother Baby Center at Mercy Hospital with Children’s Minnesota opened in July 2015 and offers the gamut of obstetric services and features the only Level II special care nursery in the North Metro with private patient rooms. The creation of this facility allowed Unity Hospital to close its birth center in anticipation of expanding mental health and addiction services.

    Mental health and addiction services

    To meet the growing need for mental health and addiction services, the Unity campus is undergoing a number of changes. The fourth floor, former home to the Birth Center, is being renovated to create a 40-bed inpatient mental health unit, Allina Health Mental Health is moving to a larger space on site, and the Emergency Department will be 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.
