St. Olaf President David Anderson sent out this email earlier today
Dear Oles and Colleagues:
I am writing to inform you of a pending development that involves a parcel of land owned by the College on the far northern edge of campus.
Mayo Clinic is proposing the development of a radiation oncology treatment center in Northfield. The facility will be located near Northfield Hospital. The center’s patients will have access to services provided by the hospital.
Mayo is considering an approximately 3 1/2 acre tract along the south side of North Avenue, with the College leasing that land for construction of the new center. Once completed, the 13,000 square foot facility will allow Northfield area patients to receive oncology services close to home, where before many had to travel more than an hour away for their daily radiation treatments.
