A new ambulatory care center on the Twin Cities campus, which would house patient clinics for use by University of Minnesota Physicians, students and Fairview Health Services, will be discussed by the University of Minnesota Board of Regents during its meetings on Thursday, March 8 and Friday, March 9. The care center would replace outdated clinic space located in the Phillips-Wangensteen Building, which was built in 1974.

The $182.5 million ambulatory care center will fulfill four guiding principles for the project and reflects President Eric W. Kaler’s vision for the university:

Regents will be briefed on the proposed center, including its financing, ownership and governance during a work session on Thursday. The Board is tentatively scheduled to act on a preliminary resolution related to the project on Friday.

Other Board of Regents agenda items include:

The Board will begin its meetings at 11 a.m. Thursday. It will also meet from 9 a.m. to noon Friday. More information about the Board meeting, including the full agenda, can be found at
