GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - The Aurora Clinic is moving. Clinic administration decided it would be best for the practice.

This comes after Altru bought the building where Doctors Hospital planned to open nearly two months ago.

Altru Health System is honoring the leases of tenants in the building, but Aurora Clinic decided it was a good time to move into a new location.

Boxes line the halls of Aurora Clinic as a big move is planned for the end of the week.

"It just ended up being a good opportunity for us, the space opened up for us and with all the changes going on here, we wanted to make sure we were able to serve our patients the way we wanted to," Aurora Clinic Office Manager Stacy Kusler said.

The clinic is moving to a space right across the parking lot from where it is now in a space that used to be occupied by the Center Of Psychiatric Care. A more convenient space for patients.

"Previously the lab has already moved out and that was a big hit for us because our patients used to be able to walk down the hall, moving into this location, they'll be able to go to the lab without having to go outside," Kusler said.

Altru Health System is honoring current tenants leases. There are several tenants that are leaving and a few who will be there for years to come.

"In this particular case they had made a decision to move their operation, which is fine, so we honored the termination of their lease and it just worked out that we'll move into that space with some of the primary care folks," Altru Chief Operating Officer Brad Wehe said.

Altru is also planning to move in an imaging center, lab, GI and endoscopy clinic, orthopedic center as well as primary and urgent care. This will happen over the next 12 months.

"As those spaces become available we would look first at that and then there's a lot of unfinished space we have to fit up," Wehe said.

Aurora Clinic will close at noon on Friday and be in the new location on Monday, April 23.
