MINOT, N.D. (AP) -- A nonprofit that operates five health centers in central and northern North Dakota to serve the needy has opened a sixth facility in Minot.
The federally supported Northland Community Health Center clinics offer medical, dental and behavioral health services to those in need regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay. The Minot facility opened Feb. 12, joining centers in Rolla, Rolette, Bowbells, McClusky and Turtle Lake.
Northland CEO Patrick Butler says the nonprofit wanted to open a clinic in Minot in part because the city is on the edge of the western North Dakota oil patch, which is booming.
A grand opening for the clinic is scheduled March 12.
