Windom Area Health came to Pope Design Group with an immediate need for a new surgery department and outreach clinic. Facing the challenges of an outdated facility and future space needs, Pope developed a master plan to guide the current and future projects.

The 23,000 sq. ft. addition welcomes patients with a new lobby and registration area. The expansion features a 12 room outreach clinic with procedure space. It offers a place for visiting physicians and clinicians to bring valuable services to the Windom community. With additional existing space, the hospital expanded into two new operating rooms with prep, recovery and support areas.

A few years later, the team designed a 4,200 sq. ft. Emergency Department renovation which features a new triage with four new treatment rooms, as well as a nurse station, cardiac rehabilitation room, trauma room, and behavioral health room. A new 5,000 sq. ft. air handler which replaces the original 1970s system was also included in the project.
