Count on Essentia Health to help keep you and your community healthy. We deliver high-quality health care close to home in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin.
While traditional health care focuses on treatment after you become ill, Essentia offers wellness programs to prevent illness and make a healthy difference in people's lives.
We make it easy to schedule your next appointment by phone or online (primary care only).

Get health care when and where you need it. Whether you live in a city or rural area, you’ll find a wide range of care through Essentia. We have hospitals and clinics, pharmacies, long-term care facilities, and assisted and independent living facilities available to help care for you.
We work hard to bring primary and specialty care to rural areas in the following ways:
Telehealth allows you to receive care from a specialist who is not available in your home community.
Telehealth appointments take place at your local clinic or hospital through secure interactive videoconferencing. You’ll feel like you are in the same room with your doctor, and there will be a caregiver in the exam room with you. You can expect the same high-quality care as you would receive during an in-person visit.
Telehealth can be used for services such as heart care, psychiatry, stroke care, or weight loss. You’ll save the time and expense of traveling long distances when you receive care via telehealth.
Talk to your doctor to find out if telehealth services are available at your local hospital or clinic for your condition. Telehealth services are covered by insurance.
