Posted OnDecember 01, 2021

Altru Health System is excited to announce plans to expand and improve healthcare in Devils Lake. Focused on the long-term needs of the Lake Region, Altru has signed a letter of intent to purchase fifty acres of land for a future hospital facility. In addition, Altru is developing a new dialysis center and expanding imaging services.

“After listening to the community of Devils Lake and collaborating with local leaders, we are taking the next steps to improve care in Devils Lake and delivering the high-quality service residents deserve,” shared Dr. Steven Weiser, Altru’s President. “Investing in property that can accommodate the long-term needs of this community and expanding the services we offer will greatly enhance healthcare in Devils Lake.”

The construction of our flagship regional hospital and expansion of care in Devils Lake is part of Altru’s overall strategy to improve access to world-class care, expert providers and state-of-the art facilities in Grand Forks and throughout the region we serve.

In addition to the long-range plans for hospital services, Altru has an immediate focus on expanding and enhancing outpatient services along with needed specialty coverage. Plans for a 12-bed dialysis center are in process, and needed imaging services will be incorporated into Altru Clinic in Devils Lake. Other key areas of focus include women’s services, orthopedics, oncology, cardiology and pharmacy.

“The community of Devils Lake will be a regional destination center for high-quality healthcare in North Dakota,” expressed Dr. Weiser. “To achieve this, Altru has committed resources to expand these services so residents can stay close to home for a majority of their care. In addition, we will continue our robust physician recruitment plan to support our region.”

Altru will continue to collaborate with local and regional leaders to envision the direction of healthcare in Devils Lake now and into the future. Altru’s priority is ensuring the specific needs of the residents of the Lake Region are met, and that the community has a strong voice in their healthcare. Our regional legacy is a testament to that commitment for over 20 years.
