Cuyuna Regional Medical Center is expanding its services to better serve the medical needs of North-Central Crow Wing County and improve access to quality healthcare by opening a new physician clinic in Breezy Point in Spring 2019.
The new clinic will be the anchor of the new North Star Center being developed on 20 acres along county road 11 across from the Breezy Point Sports Center. The complex, named after the Breezy Point North Stars USA Hockey-sanctioned junior ice hockey team, will also include a Guide Point Pharmacy, dental office, other medical related facilities, gas station, and convenience store, according to developer Bob Spizzo, CEO of Whitebirch, Inc.
Tom Lillehei, Mayor of the City of Breezy Point, welcomes CRMC to the community and thanks Whitebirch, Inc., for the development of the North Star Center which will become the showcase entrance to the city.
CRMC recognizes the high level of growth in the region and strives to meet the needs of the communities it serves. “We continually evaluate demographic shifts, community need, depth and breadth of available services, accessibility, and consumer ease,” stated Kyle Bauer, CRMC’s CEO, adding the organization started project discussions in early 2017. “Our goal is to bring high quality, convenient health services closer to the communities we serve.”
One physician and an advanced practice provider will be located at the 7,000 square foot space. There will be nine exam rooms and a procedure room for outpatient clinic care and additional space available for expansion. Other services immediately available at the new building will include laboratory and diagnostic imaging services.
“CRMC is excited to partner with Whitebirch and City of Breezy Point to provide a new clinic in an area where numerous patients already receive our services. It is our goal to bring as many services as we can to the patient,” said Bauer.
The new clinic, like all CRMC satellite locations, will be connected to the MyChart electronic health record system, so all patients’ vital medical information is available to any CRMC provider, no matter where they are seen, for better coordinated care.
Whitebirch, Inc./Breezy Point Resort established in 1921, is the developer of 3,000 acres within the City of Breezy Point. Groundbreaking for the new building is expected this spring. CRMC and Guide Point Pharmacy are planning to open their new clinic and pharmacy in the spring of 2019.
