In 1999, River’s Edge Hospital (formerly St. Peter Community Hospital) began working toward executing an expansion and renovation to their existing hospital, or building an entirely new facility on a site within the city limits of St. Peter. The decision needed to incorporate the high quality of healthcare already provided at the existing hospital, while creating opportunity for future patient care services.
Yanik completed an extensive facility study considering all available options. The hospital board concluded that a new facility would best meet the healthcare needs of St. Peter and the surrounding communities. Yanik began a land search and analysis and, shortly thereafter, design and space programming for the facility was initiated. Under Yanik’s leadership, the team prepared a campus master plan for the 28 acres of land selected including space for a full continuum of healthcare and “one-stop” medical shopping. The master plan permitted all of these components to be connected to the new hospital, as well as allowing for appropriate expansion for the hospital itself.
Construction on the new community hospital began in 2003. The new facility has a total of 17 patient rooms, which includes 10 private patient rooms, two special care rooms, one isolation room, a hospice room and three LDRP rooms. All rooms are designed to actively promote healing through the introduction of the Wellness Environments™ room concept. The Minnesota Department of Health worked closely with hospital management and the design team to incorporate, for the first time in a Minnesota hospital, the Wellness Environments™ concept of care.
