Construction work is slated to begin on an expansion and renovation of Riverwood Healthcare Center’s clinic facilities in Aitkin, Minn., next week. The project will proceed in four phases with an estimated completion planned for early 2019 and an investment of $14 million.

The project includes renovations that will allow a new kidney dialysis facility to be operated in partnership with CentraCare Health as well as a redesign of the specialty clinic, allowing for expansion of current service lines, including a new GI lab for the Minnesota Reflux & Heartburn Center. Renovation of the Aitkin primary care clinic will support a team-based approach, and relocation and expansion of the rehabilitation department will provide easier access for patients. The expansion of space will also allow for growth in the orthopedic department with easier access and additional imaging capabilities.

Kraus-Anderson will serve as the construction firm.
