Fargo VA Health Care System
Minot VA Clinic New Location
The Fargo VA Health Care System has awarded a lease at a new site for its Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Minot, N.D.
The new 9,650 square-foot space, located at Southside Plaza (3400 South Broadway St., Minot), is expected to be ready for occupancy by the end of 2018. The contract with Shop On South Broadway, LLC., is a 10-year lease.
The new clinic location provides nearly three times more space than the current clinic to accommodate the needs of Veterans and staff. Approximately 2,500 Veterans are served at the Minot clinic, with more than 9,000 outpatient visits annually.
The new clinic will feature nine exam rooms, three consultation rooms, a laboratory, and dedicated rooms for women’s health and telehealth. The new layout of the clinic also better utilizes the Patient Aligned Care Team model which is intended to transform the way Veterans receive care. Patient Aligned Care Teams enhance Veterans’ care by providing patient-driven, proactive, personalized, team-based care focused on wellness and disease prevention, resulting in improvements in Veteran satisfaction, healthcare outcomes, efficiency, and costs.
“Because the new clinic will be located within the city of Minot as opposed to its current location on the Minot Air Force Base, it will be much easier for Veterans in and around Minot to access their care,” said Lavonne Liversage, Fargo VA HCS Director. “Veterans can continue to expect high-quality care, in space that is far more conducive for the number of Veterans who receive their care in our clinic. We are eager to open the doors of the new clinic, as we continuously strive for improvements at the Fargo VA and our 10 outpatient clinics across North Dakota and northwest Minnesota.”
The current location of the Minot Community Based Outpatient Clinic, on Minot Air Force Base, will remain open until the new location is fully operational. Hours of operation will remain the same – Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
