Essentia Health welcomes nurse practitioner in Detroit Lakes and Park Rapids

Nurse Practitioner Timothy Fuchs has joined the Behavioral Health Department at the Essentia Health St. Mary's-Detroit Lakes Clinic in Detroit Lakes. He will also care for patients at the Essentia Health-Park Rapids Clinic.

Fuchs has more than 20 years of experience caring for patients in the behavioral health field, both as a registered nurse and a nurse practitioner.

"I have always gravitated towards psychiatric nursing, and I'm happy to be continuing my practice here at Essentia Health," he said.

Fuchs earned a master's degree in nursing from the University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyoming. He is certified as a psychiatric/mental health nurse practitioner by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

"Everybody has a story, and none are the same," says Fuchs. "I try very hard to listen and understand each person's story so I'm better able to provide individualized care."
