Essentia Health is committed to hiring local and regional workers for our Vision Northland project. We are working with our general contractor, McGough Construction, and the Duluth Building & Construction Trades Council to provide good-paying jobs in our community and bring new people into the construction trades.

By signing a Project Labor Agreement, Essentia and McGough formalized our cooperation and partnership with the building trades. The agreement ensures the project will benefit from high-quality, skilled craftspeople.

Vision Northland will provide more than 5,600 onsite construction jobs and 3,600 off-site construction-related jobs over the next three years.
