Essentia Health launching pediatrics department at Hermantown clinic

Essentia Health is excited to bring pediatric care to our Hermantown clinic.

The new service streamlines care for parents and guardians of young children and conveniently delivers it closer to home. Same-day appointments may be available. Providing this service in more communities makes it easier for families to schedule appointments, offering the same high-quality care offered at our downtown Duluth pediatrics clinic.

“We are proud to offer this expansion to our patients, to be able to see our families closer to where they live,” said Dr. Jonathan KenKnight, an Essentia pediatrician. “This offers more streamlined access to services that are essential and vital for children. This will allow us to continue providing high-quality care with better access for parents and guardians of our children from birth to late adolescence, from healthy routine well checks to complicated specialty pediatrics.”

The clinic will open July 6 with services offered Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is located at the Essentia Health-Hermantown Clinic, 4855 W Arrowhead Rd.
