The lead financial backer was the Robert Glenn Rapp Foundation, with additional dollars from the St. Anthony Foundation’s Saints Vision Campaign, and from the hospital’s infrastructure funds. The project is part of a 10-year campus development plan that began in 2004.
“As a non-profit organization, we are fortunate to have tremendous support from the community, our physicians and employees to assist us in fulfilling our mission,” said St. Anthony’s President Joe Hodges.
The fourth-floor Rapp center is a multipurpose area with meeting rooms, a board room, breakout rooms, a catering kitchen, and a patio and terrace. It will provide meeting and event space for the hospital’s employees and physicians, and will be available for community use.
The grand room includes seating
for 354 in an auditorium-style layout, or 200 in chairs at round tables. Two
breakout rooms have the capacity to each seat 20 people. The board room has
seating for 50, and can be divided into two rooms.
