New Essentia clinic opens

A new Essentia Health clinic, located at the former Mercy Hospital in Moose Lake at 4572 County Road 61, opened Tuesday.

According to an Essentia press release, there are two family medicine physicians solely dedicated to this clinic, with plans to eventually double that number. The clinic utilizes already existing lab and radiology resources.

“We’re excited to expand our offerings in Moose Lake,” said Dr. Tom Witt, family medicine physician and administrator at Essentia Health- Moose Lake. “Providing comprehensive care close to home isn’t just more convenient, it leads to better patient outcomes. This aligns with our mission of making a healthy difference in people’s lives and providing the best care possible.”

The nearly 10,000 - square- foot clinic will have 14 exam rooms, two procedure rooms, two telehealth rooms and additional space. The roughly $4 million project will make it easier for patients to receive the kind of care they expect and deserve without having to travel to Duluth or other locations. Hours will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday- Friday.

The new clinic is not associated with the nearby Gateway Family Health Clinic at 4570 County Highway 61 in Moose Lake.
