Work is progressing on the Norman and Ann Hoffman Emergency Center

Work continues on the Norman and Ann Hoffman Emergency Center expansion project on Ridgeview’s Waconia campus despite cold weather conditions. Concrete deck forms for the first floor are almost complete and will soon be ready for concrete pouring of the floor and columns to support the roof. The expansion project, including the remodel of the existing Emergency Department area and addition of space for cardiac/pulmonary rehab, is expected to be complete in the fall of 2020.

Ridgeview broke ground Oct. 22 on the new Norman and Ann Hoffman Emergency Center on its Waconia campus. Slated for completion in 2020, the $18.8 million, 23,000-square foot remodel and ED expansion will enhance Ridgeview’s capacity to provide lifesaving procedures and care for the thousands of patients and families who use Ridgeview’s emergency services each year.

The expansion will include improved patient experience and privacy, increased treatment and support space to enhance patient care, eight observation rooms, and four behavioral health Emergency Department rooms. The project will also include space for cardiac/pulmonary rehab to support patient recovery and wellness, improve patient experience and be more accessible to patients with a covered parking lot.
