About Altru

Here, care means something more than just care. It’s about looking at our community as an extension of ourselves, and treating it as such. It’s what makes our region of the country different: Truly caring for one another. So it’s no surprise that this region’s health system is made up of the same mentality. Altru exists to care for the health of this community, but that means a lot more than health care.

At Altru, we are serious about providing an exceptional patient experience and positively impacting the communities we serve. Our physician-led, community-owned, not-for-profit health system serves over 225,000 residents in northeast North Dakota and northwest Minnesota. We are a proud member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network

“I loved being around people, especially when they were at a not-so-great point in their life. It was a great opportunity to turn people’s days around. One of my favorite things was listening to each and every persons thoughts and concerns, it helped me be an advocate for them when others weren’t listening.”
