Essentia Health announces audiology care in Fosston

Audiologist accepts a large check

Care close to home is important, especially as we head into the winter months and travel is sometimes difficult. For patients in and around Fosston, Essentia Health will now be able to offer audiology care at our Fosston clinic.

The project to bring audiology services to the Fosston clinic has been ongoing for months. Now, both adult and pediatric patients can benefit from new equipment and technology installed in the clinic. This will allow patients to get care in Fosston instead of traveling to other facilities.

An audiometer and sound booth were recently installed in the Fosston clinic. First Care Foundation assisted with a donation of $7,000 toward the cost of purchasing this equipment.

Audiologist Marin Almer will see patients in Fosston the third Tuesday of each month.

“We are excited to be able to offer audiology services for our patients in Fosston and the surrounding area. Having these options close to home will make a big difference in the lives of many of our patients,” shares Kevin Gish, administrator.

To schedule an appointment for audiology or hearing concerns, please call the Fosston clinic at (218) 435-1212. You can learn more at our website, EssentiaHealth.org.
