Essentia Health-Hankinson expands services

Meridith Biel, Family Medicine

Essentia Health-Hankinson Clinic has expanded its services with Family Medicine Nurse Practitioner Meridith Biel beginning to see patients twice a week.

While lab services have been available on a limited basis in Hankinson, there hasn’t been a provider on staff since 2014. Now, lab and provider services will be available on Tuesday and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with the potential for expanded hours based on community needs.

“Meridith’s addition to the Hankinson Clinic supports Essentia’s initiative of providing primary care access across the many communities we serve,” says Julie Rosenberg, administrator. “The community has been asking for Essentia Health to have a provider return for some time. Thanks to successful recruitment and growth in our Wahpeton clinic location, we’re now positioned to expand our services to the Hankinson community.”

“I am excited to bring primary care access back to the community of Hankinson so that people do not have to travel as far to receive preventative or illness-related care. I have had the opportunity to meet some great people from Hankinson and the surrounding area in my role as a same-day provider in Wahpeton and am eager to meet many more,” says Biel.

Essentia Health-Hankinson is located at 501 Main Avenue South in Hankinson. Call 701-642-2000 to make your appointment.
