Allina Health said Monday it will invest $22 million to expand Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids.

The Minneapolis-based health system said the new 120,000-square-foot building will feature the Virginia Piper Cancer Institute, as well as specialty care, outpatient surgery services and obstetrics/women’s care. The four-story building will be across the street from Mercy, connected by a skyway.

Amenities at the addition will include a patient dropoff entrance, additional parking, hands-free entrances, extra-wide corridors and an acoustically sensitive design to maximize privacy. Healthcare Design also featured the project. 

Ground will be broken in October, with the new building opening to patients in November 2013.

Frauenshuh HealthCare Real Estate Solutions is the developer on the project and will own the building, while Allina will own the land. Kraus Anderson Construction Co. is the general contractor and Pope Architects will design the project.
