Email News Alerts

Since he was 16 years old, Dr. Mark Lindquist has spent virtually his entire working career in a hospital emergency room -- first as an orderly, and later as a medical doctor.


But as of last Thursday, the medical director of the Essentia Health-St. Mary's emergency room and St. Mary's EMS ambulance service has left his E.R. days behind.

Lindquist, 55, has joined the staff of the Sanford Health Clinic in Detroit Lakes, where he'll start his new duties on Nov. 1.
