LONG PRAIRIE -- CentraCare Health officially broke ground on a new medical campus in Long Prairie Monday.

CentraCare Health says construction has already started on the facility, which will replace the existing 60-year-old hospital. The new medical campus will open next year.

The new state-of-the-art facility will include 65,000 square feet, 26 clinic exam rooms, and two operating rooms.

Over $2.6 million in donations from over 500 donors helped make the project a reality.
