Plans for the Cuyuna Regional Medical Center (CRMC) and Minneapolis Heart Institute (MHI) building in Baxter continue to progress after the Baxter City Council approved the development agreement for the building Tuesday, April 16.
The new Baxter clinic will be located at 13205 Isle Drive. The clinic in Baxter will be a third addition to CRMC’s locations. An outpatient clinic is located in Longville and CRMC’s main campus is in Crosby.
Minneapolis Heart Institute in Baxter is a full-service cardiology clinic staffed by six cardiology providers that offer a full range of outpatient cardiovascular services and testing.
The clinic is part of the Minneapolis Heart Institute at Abbott Northwestern Hospital, part of Allina Health.
The new clinic building in Baxter will be 22,000 square feet and shared by CRMC and MHI. CRMC-Baxter will provide outpatient clinic care in addition to lab and imaging.
Initially, there will be two family medicine physicians and one physician assistant at CRMC-Baxter on a regular basis for standard clinic care.
Various medical specialty providers will also see patients in Baxter with some providers providing care exclusively in Baxter or Crosby and some providing care in Baxter and Crosby. Patient records will be accessible from both locations.
Mortenson Construction and Nor-Son Inc. are the primary building contractors. Groundbreaking for the new building is expected in April.
MHI plans to occupy the new building in November, and CRMC-Baxter is likely to begin moving into the building in December.
