Altru Invites Devils Lake Community to Listening Sessions Regarding The Future of Local Healthcare

Grand Forks, N.D. - Altru is inviting our patients, family members and friends in Devils Lake to Community Listening Sessions later this month. These sessions will be led by the leadership and physicians at Altru Clinic in Devils Lake and Altru executive team members. We will host two sessions at Lake Region State College in the Dining Room:

  • Thursday, July 15 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, July 20 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

There is a substantial opportunity and immediate need to enhance healthcare services in Devils Lake. A community owned, Altru managed hospital is the ideal choice for the Devils Lake community. In this model, 100 percent of the current hospital and clinic staff would retain their jobs, the community would own their healthcare decisions and the funds raised by the hospital would remain local, while care between the hospital, clinic and specialized care needs remains part of a unified system managed by Altru.

“We are seeking the community’s support to pursue this healthcare future in Devils Lake,” said Stephanie Foughty, MD, Chair of the Altru Clinic in Devils Lake. “Healthcare is a cornerstone of any community, and impacts not only the health of its residents, but also the vibrancy of the community itself. A locally owned, integrated health system ensures our residents can access the world-class care they deserve right in their community, well into the future.”
