Long Prairie and Melrose Construction Updates

Thanks to the work of many contributors, new medical campuses are currently being built in Long Prairie and Melrose. Both projects are projected to finish in 2017.

Lots of work is underway this year across CentraCare Health. This year, we've broken ground and begun construction on new medical facilities in both Long Prairie and Melrose.

Our Commitment to a Healthy Community

Our existing building is nearly 60 years old, which presents several challenges. The current hospital was constructed for extensive inpatient care, but today’s care is focused more in the outpatient setting.

Current plans call for a 65,000-square-foot clinic and hospital facility with 26 clinic exam rooms.

Construction of the new medical campus at CentraCare Health – Long Prairie started in May 2016, with completion expected late 2017.

CentraCare Health – Melrose is constructing a new hospital to better serve the 11,000 residents in the Melrose service area.

Fundraising efforts are continuing to help support pieces of the project that wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of the community.

Construction of the $26 million, 53,000 square foot hospital began in June 2016; opening anticipated for winter 2017.
