Mayo Clinic has made a substantial long-term investment in serving the emergency medical needs of patients in the Fairmont Region. On Sunday, May 21 the doors officially open and ambulances officially roll out of a new home for Gold Cross. The scale of the $1.6 million project represents Mayo Clinic’s ongoing commitment to the community and to providing advanced life support emergency medical care.

Gold Cross Ambulance operations manager and lead on the project, Kris Keltgen, says the new station “represents a commitment to patients, the community and staff in Fairmont.” He adds that energy and cost efficiency were factored into the project as well as a look ahead to future needs. Keltgen says input for the design and features of the facility were requested from staff to ensure it would be a functional, practical fit for the long-term.

“We look at the scope of this project as a confirmation that we are committed to serving the needs of the patients in the Fairmont region for well into the future and ensuring that our Team has a facility to meet their needs.” Keltgen adds that Gold Cross and Mayo Clinic Medical Transport leadership view the new facility as opportunity to continue to attract the most qualified and proficient caregivers throughout the years. “We have never owned a facility in Fairmont, so when this project was approved we wanted to make sure that it featured what our current Team and prospective employees expected from a service of Mayo Clinic,” Keltgen says.

The new facility was paid entirely by Mayo Clinic, with no tax subsidies or direct costs to residents or impact to city budgets. “We view this project as a partnership with the region,” Keltgen says. “Gold Cross is a long-time member of the local business community, marking 20 years in 2017, and we look forward continuing our commitment to the City of Fairmont, our fellow business colleagues and the residents and visitors to the region.”

Local contractor Tech Builders of Fairmont was retained to build and serve as general contractor for the new facility. Many of the subcontractors and businesses involved with the project are also located in the Fairmont region.
