Fargo VA Health Care System
Bemidji VA clinic moving in January 2018
The Fargo VA Health Care System has awarded a lease at a new site for its Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Bemidji, Minn.
The 10,000 square-foot space, located at 1217 Anne St., Bemidji, Minn. 56601, is expected to be ready for occupancy by January of 2018. The contract with S&J Enterprises, Inc., is a 10-year lease with a five-year option.
More space was needed to accommodate the needs of Veterans and staff. The current clinic initially started with one primary care provider and now the clinic has three Patient Aligned Care Teams serving approximately 3,000 Veterans.
“As we expanded services to Veterans in and around the Bemidji area and the number of Veterans seeking care increased, we recognized the need for additional space,” said Lavonne Liversage, Fargo VA Health Care System Director. “This new facility will assist us in continuing to provide high-quality VA care and services. We are eager to open the doors of the new clinic, as we are always striving for continuous improvement at the Fargo VA and all of our 10 outpatient clinics across North Dakota and northwest Minnesota.”
The current location of the Bemidji Community Based Outpatient Clinic will remain open until the new location is fully operational. The new clinic will feature the same services as the current outpatient clinic. Hours of operation will be Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, call the Fargo VA HCS Public Affairs Office at (701) 239-3724.
