Four months after debuting a brand new clinic, Altru is busy renovating their old Devils Lake facility. The updated building will nearly double the clinic's size and help usher in new medical services for patients.

The clinic says their goal is to make a one-stop healthcare spot for patients in the Lake Region. Crews should finish renovating the original clinic next week, opening up 21,000 square feet in addition to the new clinic. The extra room means the clinic will be adding three new imaging services, x-rays, ultrasounds and bone density scanners. Clinic workers will train on the new scanning equipment next month.

The expansion also means the clinic will add five to ten new jobs. Clinic manager Brett Travica says the new services will make life easier for patients in the area. Travica also says the expanded services will help attract more medical providers to the area, which would benefit all hospitals and doctor's offices in the area. The new services will be available to patients in either late February or early March.
