Essentia Health St. Mary's plans new PR clinic

Essentia Health St. Mary's will be breaking ground in Pelican Rapids for a new clinic facility.

The new clinic will be located just south of the City of Pelican Rapids offices; land currently being purchased from Lake Region Electric Cooperative.

Construction on the new facility will begin in early spring 2011.

The new facility is approximately 7,000 square feet and will provide enough space for family medicine providers, regularly scheduled specialists, as well as pharmacy and therapy services.

"We are very excited about the opportunity to better serve residents of Pelican Rapids and the surrounding area," said Tom Thompson, Essentia Health St. Mary's CEO. "We have served an increased number of Pelican Rapids area patients in our Detroit Lakes' facilities over the past few years. 

"Our organization's philosophy is to serve people where they live and work, and we are excited to make this commitment to Pelican Rapids."

Essentia Health is an integrated health system serving patients in four states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Idaho.

Headquartered in Duluth, Essentia Health brings together SMDC Health System, Brainerd Lakes Health, Innovis Health and Essentia Community hospitals and clinics.
