When groceries are needed, you head to the local grocery store. For a dental check-up, you see your dentist, and to fuel vehicles, you stop at a local gas station. Living local is convenient and keeps you connected to your community.
Don’t forget about another key aspect – convenient access to care. That’s what we’re trying to do.
We’ve been working harder than ever to bring care to our patients throughout the region. In January, we established Altru Clinic in Thief River Falls. This is just one of our many locations to offer service, convenient care and accessibility to patients.
Starting July 15, 2013, we’re proud to bring local services to another community – East Grand Forks, Minn. Our new location, Altru Clinic in East Grand Forks, will serve as a main access point for patients in the community and surrounding areas.
“We’ve seen a significant increase in the number of patients coming from East Grand Forks to Grand Forks for care at Altru,” says Jill Wilson, administrative director of Regional Operations. “Our new clinic location will simplify and streamline access to care for patients.”
Physical, occupational, speech and hand therapy services currently offered at Altru Outpatient Center will relocate to Altru Clinic in East Grand Forks. Our expanded space creates additional private treatment areas for patients.
In addition to providing comprehensive therapy services, we’ll offer specialties that best meet the community’s needs, including same-day care for family medicine. Starting this summer, several specialties will be available at Altru Clinic in East Grand Forks, including:
- Family Medicine
- Internal Medicine
- Sports Medicine
When a patient schedules an appointment at Altru Clinic in East Grand Forks, great things happen.
