Allina Health announces significant upgrade to Cambridge Medical Center

CAMBRIDGE, Minn. (September 12, 2019) — As part of our commitment to provide comprehensive care to the residents of Isanti County and surrounding communities, Allina Health is pleased to announce plans to install in a new state-of-the-art heating, cooling and ventilation (HVAC) system for Cambridge Medical Center.

The new air handler system will take approximately two weeks to install and will improve temperature control and comfort for patients and staff. The total cost of the update is $786,000.

“This is an exciting and important upgrade that will enhance our patients’ experience during their stay,” said Kelly Spratt, president, Cambridge Medical Center. “It’s important we continually invest in our hospital and the community to ensure we can provide the highest quality and safest possible care.”

In a hospital setting, special consideration is given to HVAC system design, maintenance and repair. As the Cambridge Medical Center campus continues to develop, a bigger HVAC system will keep air quality high and provide a safe and comfortable environment for patients and staff alike.

During the upgrade and installation, temporary changes will be in place to accommodate construction.

  • Beginning Sept. 17, 2019, Labor and Delivery (Obstetric) services will be sending patients for deliveries to Mercy Hospital – Mercy Campus, a part of Allina Health, in Coon Rapids.
  • This temporary diversion is expected to end Oct. 2, 2019.
  • The Mother Baby Center at Mercy with Children’s Minnesota will work closely with our physicians at Cambridge Medical Center, offering labor and delivery care for routine and high-risk pregnancies, home health services, integrative services, newborn care, and pain management services with non-medicinal options.

“This is an important upgrade not only for Cambridge Medical Center, but the entire community,” said Spratt. “We are creating an environment which will take the wellness of our patients, employees and visitors who chose this health care campus to the next level for years to come.”
