Independent Family Doctors to join Essentia

The Independent Family Doctors practice in Fargo will become part of Essentia Health on Friday, April 1. Welcoming these expert and compassionate clinicians will allow us to better serve our patients in this community and enhance access to primary care.

“We are honored to welcome the Independent Family Doctors to the Essentia family, and we look forward to working together to bring high-quality, comprehensive care to the patients we are privileged to serve,” said Al Hurley, chief operating officer for Essentia’s West Market. “Coming together will help fulfill our mission of making a healthy difference in people’s lives.”

The Independent Family Doctors facility located off of 25th Street South and south of I-94 in Fargo will become the Essentia Health Fargo Family Clinic on Friday. A team of three physicians, one advanced practice provider and additional staff will join the Essentia Health team.

Patients will continue to receive the same high level of care they have come to expect from the Independent Family Doctors and will also enjoy access to an integrated health care network with more locations and specialists.
