Benike Construction has been named the manager for a retail pharmacy and wellness center expansion on the main level of Mayo Clinic Health System in Cannon Falls. Crews are scheduled to complete the project by late-spring, according to a news release.

The retail pharmacy will be open to the community and staffed with Mayo Clinic Health System pharmacists and technicians. The wellness center's cardio and strength training equipment will be open to patients and the community for a $25 monthly membership. For an additional fee, members also will have access to a HydroMassage table that combines heat and whirlpool therapies.

"We are working on a very tight deadline, but our goal is to be fully operational by June," said Glenn Christian, operations manager at Mayo Clinic Health System in Cannon Falls. "Our staff, patients and the community have been anxiously awaiting this project since we opened the doors to the medical center over two years ago, and we are excited to finally make it a reality."

A public open house will be planned upon completion of the project.
