U-Minn approves funding of health center

The University of Minnesota has taken another step toward opening an outpatient health center near the corner of Huron Boulevard and Fulton Street, Pioneer Press reporter Doug Belden reports.

At five stories and 400,000 square feet, the facility would house a surgery center as well as specialty clinics and related services, Belden writes. It’s supposed to replace aging and overcrowded facilities, and is scheduled to open January 2014 if all goes smoothly.
