Hennepin County Medical Center is dropping plans to build a $53 million medical clinic along Interstate 394 in Minnetonka, the Business Journal reports.

"Our planning process included a re-evaluation of our business plans, patient growth projections, and facilities development needs for the western suburbs and the county overall — and our decision to discontinue planning on that site was based on our findings," HCMC spokesman Tom Hayes said in a statement to the Journal. "HCMC will continue to evaluate opportunities to expand our neighborhood clinic network to bring our services closer to our patients as part of our overall master facility development plans."

In January, the Star Tribune reported HCMC was moving forward with plans to build the outpatient care facility in the Twin Cities suburb.

The proposed three-story, 121,000-square-foot building would have provided specialty surgical services, including outpatient-only surgery, gastrointestinal procedures, advanced imaging procedures and surgical consultation.

In February, Hennepin Healthcare System hired Jon Pryor as its new chief executive officer.
