As you may remember, early this summer we opened the Brainerd Lakes Clinic — a new clinic in Baxter, Minn., that will serve as a permanent hub for assistive-technology services for area patients and families. With the clinic open and serving patients for several months, it’s time to celebrate! We’re hosting an open house for the new clinic (located at 15860 Audubon Way in Baxter) today, from 3 – 7 p.m. If you’re in the area, you’re welcome to stop by to tour the new space, meet clinic staff, and see demonstrations of services we offer at the clinic.
As Gillette’s third permanent clinic site in greater Minnesota (others are in Duluth and Willmar), the Brainerd Lakes Clinic will help us serve patients in the middle and northern parts of the state more easily, and more efficiently. Why more efficiently? Because, with a permanent site in Brainerd, Gillette’s Mobile Outreach Clinic — a program that brings Gillette services to nearly 20 communities throughout the state — will have a launching point much closer to northern Minnesota communities. We’ll put those savings towards even better services for greater Minnesota families: for example, our visits to Grand Rapids and Bemidji will nearly double.
