Anticipated Construction Of New Clinic Making For Some Big Changes In Traffic Flow At LRH

Thu 1-3-2019

(Spirit Lake)-- Anticipated construction of a new medical clinic is making for some big changes in traffic flow at Lakes Regional Healthcare. Patients coming to the hospital for lab or imaging appointments are asked to park in the hospital's east parking lot off of 23rd Street and Zenith Avenue, and use the east entrance. Volunteers are on hand to direct or escort patients, and maps are also available.

Emergency Room, Dickinson County Public Health, Avera Medical Group-Lakes Family Practice and Outpatient Center patients should continue to use the west entrance.

Trustees of Lakes Regional Healthcare will review bids for the construction of the new Avera Medical Group-Lakes Family Practice and Avera Medical Group-Spirit Lake Medical Center physician clinics in the near future. The project will result in the demolition of the current clinic, along with renovation of the area of the hospital previously used by the surgery department, along with construction of a new west entrance to the facility. Construction is still scheduled to start late this winter or early spring with completion in the spring of 2020.
