Essentia Health to Build New Clinic in Pine River
Pine River, Minn., – Construction of a new Essentia Health Clinic will begin in summer 2017.
This new clinic will allow for an expansion of primary care and specialty services. It will be located on 7 acres of land that was purchased form Resilient Properties Management.
“The community needs more access to specialists and rather than asking patients to drive to Brainerd, which can be both a time and cost barrier to getting care, we put a priority on expanding our space to bring the specialists here to Pine River,” said Bill Palmer, Essentia Health Clinic administrator, in a news release.
The land for the new clinic is located along Barclay Avenue to the west of Highway 371. It will be between Pine River State Bank and the Post Office.
“This will be a huge asset to our community and is exciting in many ways,” said Pine River Mayor Tamara Hanson. “We appreciate Essentia’s commitment to the future and providing an essential asset to our community.”
