Essentia Health - Vision Northland


Our Project

Essentia Health, with its Vision Northland project, sought to create more than just a hospital; they wanted to create a civic asset, bold enough to serve as the standard bearer of health and a physical celebration of the community it serves. The building, inspired by Duluth’s natural and urban textures, provides public amenities such as a chapel, conference spaces, retail, dining commons, and a roof garden with breathtaking views overlooking Lake Superior. Its patient-centric design drives positive patient outcomes by consolidating adaptable inpatient rooms, procedure rooms and OR platforms, and flexibly planned outpatient spaces. As the bellwether project of progressive redevelopment, it will shift the healthcare environment in Duluth and throughout the region, financially stimulating the downtown Superior Street area – an underutilized commercial and entertainment hub of Duluth.
