Mayo Family Clinic Kasson Plans Construction Kickoff Event on June 24
KASSON, Minn. – Construction plans are in place, and renovations are set to begin at Mayo Family Clinic Kasson in June. Mayo Clinic invites patients and community members to attend an informational construction kickoff event at Mayo Family Clinic Kasson, 411 W. Main St., on Wednesday, June 24, from 2 to 4 p.m.
The event will be held outside in front of the clinic, weather-permitting. In case of rain, the event will be held inside the clinic. Visitors can learn more about the project from clinic staff and see artist renderings of what the clinic will look like once construction is completed late in 2015. Refreshments will be available at this event, and visitors can come and go as their schedules allow.
“We are excited to launch this project, and we want to share that excitement with our patients and the Kasson community at this kickoff event,” says Anne Kramlinger, M.D., Family Medicine, who is medical director at Mayo Family Clinic Kasson. “Our staff is invested in the health and well-being of our patients. This project is also an investment in our patients and the entire community. It will help support our efforts to make our services more accessible and convenient through face-to-face and nonvisit care opportunities, including phone and online options.”

The renovation project will add nearly 4,200 additional square feet of space to the clinic, expanding it to more than 25,000 square feet. It also includes remodeling of another 8,600 square feet of existing space to create a more uniform look and feel throughout the facility. The project will allow for additional patient privacy and safety through a redesigned lobby and expanded hallway space. Laboratory and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation services will relocate to the front of the building to facilitate patient access. In addition, the renovation will support collaboration and efficiency for the multidisciplinary care teams, enabling them to deliver a comprehensive, seamless patient care experience.
Mayo Family Clinic Kasson offers patients primary and specialized health care services, and is home to the Mayo Family Medicine Residency Program. The clinic will remain open to patients during the renovation project. Project planners are seeking to reduce patient inconvenience as much as possible during construction.
