Community Members

Essentia Health is transforming our downtown Duluth medical campus to match our facilities with how medicine is practiced in the 21st century and to bring the highest quality health care to the Northland. We also want to boost economic development while we attract and retain top medical professionals in our community.

We will continue to care for patients as we build a replacement hospital bed tower, clinic space and surgical suites.

We pledge to keep you informed about developments during construction. Look for updates and notices of community meetings here. We also invite you to send us your questions and share your ideas using the link you’ll find on this page.
