New hospital debuts in Maple Grove, MN

Minneapolis Star Tribune, December 15, 2009

Maple Grove (MN) Hospital is set to open on Dec. 30, and now some are wondering if the new facility can drum up enough patients due to the poor economy. Some rivals are telling doctors not to send patients to the new competitor, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. The economy "is obviously a concern," said chief executive Andrew Cochrane. "But this is about serving the community." The hospital is opening in stages: Though it was built for 90 beds, it is opening with just 30.
