Letter: Thanks to Detroit Lakes fire, police departments

On behalf of the employees at St. Mary's Innovis Health, we would like to offer our gratitude to the Detroit Lakes Fire Department and Detroit Lakes Police Department for their quick and effective response to the fire at our clinic facility on Monday, May 5.

These two entities were able to contain the fire and assisted us in getting patients and employees out of the facility. They also covered the electronics within our building, and because of that, our facility sustained minimal damage and we were able to open our doors and start seeing patients right away the next morning.

We would like to thank employees from both the clinic and hospital who stayed late and came in early to help clean up. We are grateful for your loyalty and support.

We are so fortunate to have quality services in our community such as the Fire Department and Law Enforcement. -- Tom Thompson, President/CEO and Dr. Abigail Ring, CMO
