Mercy Medical Center (MMC) and Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) will proudly host a Grand Opening ceremony to officially celebrate and bless the $20 Million, 40,000 square foot addition that features both a state-of-the-art Outpatient Surgery Center and BirthPlace.   

The main level of the building features a warm and welcoming Outpatient Surgery Center that is home to three state-of the-art operating rooms with future space to outfit a fourth.  It is also equipped with two procedure rooms, four recovery bays and eight private, comfortable day surgery patient rooms.  For patients who require a longer recovery period the second floor houses eight private extended stay rooms, each complete with a private restroom and full patient amenities.

In addition to the surgical recovery unit the second level boasts the only hospital-based outpatient birthing facility in the Northwest United States, named The BirthPlace at Mercy.  With eight labor, delivery, and recovery suites, each room comes complete with a jetted tub, flat screen TV, fireplace, and sleeper sofa to create a luxurious and comfortable birthing experience.  All laboring mothers will present to the new birthing center to be admitted.  After giving birth, any patient who desires a traditional recovery period will be transferred to the existing OB unit in the hospital, while those patients who are cleared medically and choose to recover in the new facility will stay for up to 23 hours after giving birth.

The third floor of the new facility will feature one large community meeting room and a smaller break-out room, both which capture a spectacular view of the Williston Basin. 

“The addition of this new outpatient facility will provide our region with greater access to high quality care and an enhanced patient experience.  These are the types of services Mercy has identified as a growing patient need and the people in our region have also come to expect to find available in a growing metropolis.  This is a great step forward for Williston and the surrounding area and we are thrilled that CHI is committed to meeting the growing needs of Western ND,” said Matt Grimshaw, President and CEO of Mercy Medical Center. 

Mercy Medical Center is owned by Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI), a national nonprofit health organization with headquarters in Denver, Colorado. The faith-based system operates in 19 states and includes 73 hospitals; 40 long-term care, assisted- and residential-living facilities; two community health services organizations; and home health agencies.

The grand opening ceremony of Mercy’s outpatient facility will be held on September 12th at 10 a.m., in front of the new facility.  The ceremony is open to the public and will be followed by guided tours and topped off with the Williston Korner Lions serving grilled hot dogs.

The new facility is scheduled to begin providing services in late October.
