RJM Construction also will construct a new auditorium and conference Center, located on the main floor of the hospital's south wing. At 9,000 square feet, the space will include a 200-seat auditorium, boardroom and conference rooms. Construction will be complete in January of 2015.

Project partners include Fairview Health Services along with architect and engineer HGA.
