Health clinic opens in Anoka County Courthouse

Basic health care just got more convenient for employees at the Anoka County Courthouse.

HealthPartners of Bloomington opened a clinic at the courthouse Monday which will be staffed by a nurse practitioner. It will offer preventive and acute care, along with some lab services.

It’s the fifth on-site-employer clinic HealthPartners has opened since 2005, but the first in nearly three years. Director of worksite health, John Hansen, tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press ( that the company gave presentations to about 25 to 30 employers in 2010 about on-site clinics. That’s about twice the number given the previous year.
