ST. PAUL-A $22-million health care specialty clinic is being built by Kraus Anderson for HealthPartners in the St. Paul Port Authority’s Westminster Junction Business Park. The four-story, 130,000-sf project on the southwest corner of Phalen Boulevard and Westminster Street will have a staff of 70 physicians plus 300 support employees when it opens in October.

“Demand for specialty care is exploding and we’re significantly increasing our specialty care services to stay ahead of the market,” says Mary Brainerd, chief executive officer of HealthPartners. A year ago, the clinic unveiled a $10-million, 60,000-sf outpatient clinic, but it has since doubled in size.

As Baby Boomers age, they are increasingly going to specialists for their heart conditions, diabetes, cancer or other diseases that are starting to afflict them. In fact, the new clinic, which is under construction, is just the latest in a boom of specialty health care facilities going up in the Twin Cities.

For instance, St. Paul Heart Clinic and United Hospital in St. Paul are announcing today they will break ground on a $25-million specialty clinic. And North Memorial won city council approval for a new clinic in Maple Grove earlier this week, the first phase of what could be a $117-million health care campus.

Meanwhile, HealthPartners, the Bloomington-based health care management company, says it would close four of its smaller primary care clinics in the Minneapolis area by March, affecting about 175 staff employees and some 28,000 patients. The patients can go to one of nine other HealthPartners primary care clinics.
