LISBON, N.D. — Essentia Health will build a new $3.3 million clinic here that will be three times as large as the current clinic.

The new clinic, which will start construction in the fall, will replace the current clinic at its location at 819 Main St. in the Ransom County town of Lisbon, about 75 miles southwest of Fargo.

At 6,000 square feet, the replacement clinic will be three times as large. And, via expanded services, additional providers and equipment upgrades, it will enable increased access to care.

“We couldn’t be more excited to make this investment in Lisbon, which will allow us to continue providing expert and compassionate care close to home for our patients in the area,” said Al Hurley, chief operating officer for Essentia Health’s west market.

Features of the new clinic include 12 exam rooms (all of which will be telehealth-capable), two procedure rooms, increased office space and an expansion of lab and radiology services. Additional opportunities for specialty care — for example, cardiology, orthopedics and urology — also will be available.


Construction is expected to be complete by spring 2023.

Essentia Health has served Lisbon and the surrounding areas since 2008. The current clinic will remain in operation during construction of the new clinic.
