St. Lukes provides update on halfway point of Phase 1

DULUTH, MN — As Duluth’s medical scene undergoes a major revamp, we’re nearing one of the multi-million dollar project’s half-way points.

The hospital broke ground on this 37-and-a-half million dollar project back in April.

Here’s what it looks like now.

This is just the halfway point of Phase one.. and hospital officials say they’re still on track to finish by next August.

These spaces you see under construction will soon be home to a new catheterization labs, an emergency department, and a parking garage.

Hospital officials say the emergency department will be triple the size of what the current space is.

During the construction process St. Luke’s is also partnering with the city of Duluth to make another big project happen at the same time.

Mike Boeselager, St. Luke’s Vice President of Support Services  adds “And then we also partnering with the city to extend the hot water loop too, so that’s really a conversion of steam for heating into hot water, so much more efficient service we estimate energy savings of approximately 30%.”

While phase one is expected to be completed in august there’s still a lot more to be done.

Phase 2 will include expanding the medical office building. Then phase 3 will include work on the new inpatient tower.
