DULUTH — Construction at Essentia Health’s Vision Northland project is about 80% complete and is on track to be open to patients in about a year, Essentia and McGough Construction representatives said during a media tour of the facility Wednesday.

The 18-story hospital tower, which is 942,000 square feet, will become the new Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center. Dr. David Herman, CEO of Essentia Health, said the health care system expects to take possession of the building in February. Staff will be given several months to move into and train in the new building before patients are admitted, which is anticipated to happen in late-summer 2023.
