As healthcare organizations begin to emerge from the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic, announcements of new and restarted construction projects are becoming more frequent. Now one-high profile research institution has joined in.

The Mayo Clinic recently announced that its Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Building on the Rochester, Minn., campus will open in 2023. The new facility will enable the team-based scientists of Mayo Clinic to continue finding care solutions for patients. The energy-efficient structure will feature 11 floors and 176,000 square feet of flexible laboratory space.

The new building's high-profile exterior showcases Mayo Clinic's commitment to transformative biomedical research. The integrated work environment continues the legacy of team science and collaboration with incremental facilities for basic and translational cancer biology as well as other areas of scientific inquiry.

The building initially was announced in 2019 as a four-story building. The pandemic experience has demonstrated the need to grow and accelerate scientific advancements, and science is conducted in physical space. The facility will complement community and industry partners in downtown Rochester's DMC Discovery Square district, a research, innovation and development hub.
