Essentia Health is adding more care options for its patients along the I-35 corridor in the Moose Lake area.
Essentia’s new clinic, in the existing Moose Lake hospital, opens Tuesday, Sept. 7.
The clinic will provide high-quality patient care by utilizing already existing lab and radiology resources. There will be two family medicine physicians, solely dedicated to this clinic, with plans to eventually double that number. The goal is to build upon our commitment to provide care in the communities it serves by offering family medicine, obstetrics, cardiology, urology, orthopedics and more to patients in Moose Lake and the surrounding communities.
“We’re excited to expand our offerings in Moose Lake,” said Dr. Tom Witt, family medicine physician and administrator at Essentia Health-Moose Lake. “Providing comprehensive care close to home isn’t just more convenient, it leads to better patient outcomes. This aligns with our mission of making a healthy difference in people’s lives and providing the best care possible.”
The nearly 10,000-square-foot clinic will have 14 exam rooms, two procedure rooms, two telehealth rooms and additional space. The roughly $4 million project will make it easier for patients to receive the kind of care they expect and deserve without having to travel to Duluth or other locations.
A week later, on Sept. 15, a community open house and ribbon-cutting will be held. The open house will include brief remarks from community and Essentia leaders, and will feature self-guided tours of the new clinic space, refreshments and more.
The clinic, which will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, is located in the Moose Lake hospital at 4572 Co. Rd. 61.
