Nurse Practitioner Carrie Ramsey has joined the Elder Care Department at the Essentia Health St. Mary’s-Detroit Lakes Clinic in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. Ramsey will also care for patients as part of the Hospitalist Team at Essentia Health- St. Mary’s Hospital in Detroit Lakes.

“I was born and raised in Detroit Lakes, and my family is deeply established in this community,” says Ramsey. “After working for four years at Essentia Health as a registered nurse, I am so happy to start my career as a nurse practitioner in my hometown and to contribute to the health and well-being of patients in this area.”

Ramsey earned a master’s degree in nursing from Concordia University in Mequon, Wisconsin. She is certified as a family nurse practitioner by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

“I have a true passion for medicine and I look forward to caring for patients in both the hospital and the clinic,” says Ramsey. “I really enjoy the challenge of sorting through a patient’s health history to determine a treatment plan that helps them to stay active and healthy.”
