Scenic Rivers Health Services

has been keeping northern Minnesota healthy since 1979.  Our focus is providing quality primary care.  We live, work and play in the communities we serve - our patients are our family, friends, and neighbors!

Our mission is to provide medical, dental and behavioral health services in a remote, rural area of northern Minnesota.  We recognize that our patients are the reason we are here, and we know it’s our job to keep our rural communities healthy.  Thank you for your confidence in our providers and staff.

Patient Centered Care Model
Scenic Rivers Health Services strives to provide quality and compassionate care to every patient at every visit.  We believe in the concept of patient centered care, where the patient is at the center of all aspects of their healthcare.  We respect each patient’s unique needs, culture, personal values and preferences, and encourage patients to play an active role in their healthcare by embracing a team approach to patient care.

Scenic Rivers Health Services is a Community Health Center and Federally Qualified Health Center.  We are an affirmative action equal opportunity employer and provider. We are funded in part by a grant from the Bureau of Primary Health Care.
