Essentia Health is expanding to better serve the expanding south Fargo area.
Construction has already started at a new clinic on 51st Avenue South.
The facility will offer family medicine, pediatric care, physical therapy, diabetic education and radiology.
Officials want to make it convenient for locals to get medical care.
That’s why the new clinic will be open on nights and weekends, in a neighborhood not currently served by Essentia.
“We don’t have a presence there to the extent that we would like. It’s probably the fastest growing market segment within our community,” says Mark Waldera of Essentia Health.
Essentia hopes to open the new clinic in July of 20-16.
