A look at the “concrete monorail” from an upper floor in the new medical office building.
Today, Mortenson Construction began taking down the “concrete monorail” as Jennifer Graves, R.N., nurse executive calls it to make room for a new garden.

The new courtyard is expected to open to the public around the same time the new medical office building/ER opens in November.
