North Memorial Health Announces New Expanded Blaine Clinic to Open in 2022


North Memorial Health today announced the development of a new and expanded clinic in Blaine designed to provide expanded primary, specialty and urgent care services to the community.

The new clinic will be located on the southwest corner of Lexington Ave and 109th Ave, just five miles away from North Memorial Health’s current Blaine clinic. It is scheduled to open in October 2022. The new, larger state-of the-art facility will allow the North Memorial Health Clinic team to serve more patients in Blaine and the surrounding communities. The clinic will be built to accommodate the continued growth of North Memorial Health’s primary and specialty care practices, as well as provide a larger and improved space for urgent care services.

Some of the clinic’s key features will include:

  • Added cardiac rehabilitation and an expanded cardiology space
  • In-house imaging
  • Expanded rheumatology, rheumatology infusion, endocrinology and pain care
  • A community room available for education
  • An increased number of more than 70 primary care, specialty care and urgent care exam rooms

“This new clinic will help us meet the growing need for primary, specialty and urgent care services for patients in the Blaine community,” said J. Kevin Croston, MD, CEO of North Memorial Health. “We are excited to be creating a new, state-of the art space that will provide an even better patient experience and a wonderful environment for our team members.”

Project partners on this project include Forte Real Estate (formerly The Excelsior Group), a local advisory firm that helped North Memorial Health’s leadership team select the location; Gardner Builders as the General Contractor and HGA Architects & Engineers as the base building architect. MSP Commercial is the developer of the project and will also be managing it after completion.

“We are excited to partner with such a well-respected and established healthcare leader in the community. Our experience in healthcare real estate development and management will help create a supported, high-quality environment for North Memorial Health to achieve their growth and patient experience goals,” Shared Alex Young, President at MSP Commercial.

Once complete, the new facility will replace the current Blaine clinic located on Ulysses Street NE.
