Moving Parts

As Altru continues to work building a better tomorrow for our community and region, a lot of moving parts need to happen before our first patient occupies our new hospital in early 2025. These moving parts include remodeling of existing buildings and relocations of departments from the current hospital to clinic space. We appreciate your patience as we work to create a 5-star patient experience for each person.

Below is a list of some of the moves that may impact patients. Departments will call patients will appointments and let them know ahead of time if they are to check in someplace different.

If you would like GPS directions to one of our locations, check out our locations page.
