New Health Center Update
The Lac Courte Oreilles Health Center is the oldest health center in the Bemidji District which includes Ilinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. For the past 3 ½ years the LCO Health Center Team has been working closely with Tribal Governing Board, Glenn Hall (Project Manager, IHS, Bay Bank and Oneida Bank, Woodstone Construction, Brunton Architects, Innova Group and LCO Legal Department. The health center project was approved for construction in early May of 2023. This new facility will allow us to provide extended and improved healthcare to our community. The facility will be located on Hwy. K, just south of the LCO Casino Lodge, across from the Golf Course. It will be large enough to encompass all of our Medical, Behavioral Health, Dental, Pharmacy, X-ray, Lab, Community Health, Chiropractic, IT, HR, Finance, Facilities, Registration, Benefits, and Administration in one location. This will improve our ability to provide the ‘Home Medical Model of Patient Care’. Groundbreaking is scheduled for Mid-June 2023 and completion date is projected early March of 2025.
