Opening August 2015...

The new Carl N. Platou Emergency Center

There is a better way to practice emergency medicine, and it’s being created at Fairview Southdale Hospital. With faster care for more needs, this state-of-the-art facility will provide world-class care for your neighbors, family members and maybe even yourself.
With your help, we’ll be ready to:
Save more lives…
The Carl N. Platou Emergency Center expansion will be more than 4 times larger than the current emergency department, growing from 15,000 square feet to 65,000 square feet.of emergency and observation space. The project provides new areas designed to meet the future emergency needs of our growing community.

Speed the delivery of care…
Not only will our expanded facility be easy to get to, it will be easier to get through as well. From the admitting area to a new observation wing, the Carl N. Platou Emergency Center will be designed to increase the speed with which patients are evaluated and treated.
Create a smarter approach to meeting chronic health care needs….
We are leading the field of emergency medicine by creating a new care model to directly address the increasing demand for chronic care within the scope of emergency medicine. The Popp Chronic Disease Center & Observation Unit will provide focused care for people with chronic health conditions.
Respond in the case of disaster...
Fairview Southdale is the closest hospital in the Twin Cities to the airport, the Mall of America and other Twin Cities attactions. Additionally, given our proximity to Highway 62, we have one of the most easily-accessible emergency departments in the Twin Cities. Our expansion will increase our ability to care for many people in the event of a large-scale public emergency, tragedy or disaster.
