Patients can now receive care at new Essentia Health-Cloquet Clinic and urgent care
Essentia Health is proud to announce the opening of our new Cloquet clinic and urgent care, which opened on May 16. It’s another milestone in our commitment to provide care close to home for the communities we are privileged to serve.
“We know that there is an unmet need in the community and we know this can help fill that gap,” said Trina Lower, operations director for Essentia.
By opening this clinic, Essentia has made access to care easier for thousands of patients who live in Cloquet, Carlton and several surrounding cities. In 2021 alone, nearly 7,500 patients from that area visited other Essentia facilities more than 17,600 times. Now, instead of having to travel to Duluth, Moose Lake or elsewhere, this patient population will have access to the same high-quality health care right in their community.
With 12 exam rooms, one procedure room and one telehealth room, the clinic will be 7,600 square feet and will offer family practice care with obstetrics; urgent care; additional specialty services; and laboratory and radiology services.
“Patients will have access to expert, compassionate care locally and their health information will be available for all Essentia providers in our system’s electronic medical record (EMR),” said Dr. Tom Witt, physician administrator at Essentia. “They will also have that information available at their fingertips through MyChart.”
The clinic, located at 1413 Hwy. 33 S., will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The urgent care, located at the same address, will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Appointments can be made at EssentiaHealth.org, via MyChart or by calling (218) 337-4000.
