Pontiac Land, Mayo Clinic to partner on expansion of Mayo's Rochester campus

MAYO Clinic and real estate developer Pontiac Land Group are collaborating to expand Mayo’s Rochester campus to meet the growing demand for additional clinical space.

The 11-floor expansion of the Gonda Building includes four floors for new clinical space - which will deliver an additional 200,000 square feet of clinical space - and seven floors for a premium hotel. The partnership will help speed up a long-planned expansion, they said in a joint release.

While plans for the development are still being finalised, Mayo Clinic plans to invest US$190 million into the clinical expansion and use the additional space for the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center and Outpatient Procedure Center.

“Mayo Clinic is experiencing increased requests for care across our campuses, and meeting the current and future medical needs of our patients is our top priority,” said C Michel Harper Jr, MD, executive dean of practice at Mayo Clinic. “We’re experiencing significant patient care space constraints on our Rochester campus, so we’re excited that this collaboration with Pontiac Land allows us to reach our expansion goals earlier.”

Philip Kwee, chief operating officer of Pontiac Land, added:“The collaboration will bring together two fields of complementary expertise: medical and hospitality. Each partner will be able to leverage their individual expertise to enhance the patient and guest experience."

Preliminary plans are for construction to begin by the end of 2019 or early 2020, with the project slated for completion by end-2022.
