Open Door Health Center

CEO Statement

In 2018, Open Door Health Center treated 11,480 unique patients from 55 counties across southern Minnesota. This is a dramatic increase of 48% more patients than in 2016.

Our clinicians and staff have been busier than ever providing integrated patient-centered health care. As a result, we were honored again this year to be recognized as a designated Minnesota Health Care Home.

Unfortunately, there is still a growing number of individuals and families with unmet health care needs. In 2018, we purposely strengthened our financial standing in order to expand our capacity to meet these needs in our communities.

Open Door Health Center will continue to evolve, to expand our mission by offering a full range of medical, dental, and behavioral health services to all people across southern Minnesota, regardless of a patient’s ability to pay.

In 2019, we will continue to think innovatively, increasing access, and eliminating obstacles to quality healthcare for the good of southern Minnesotans and the prosperity of our region.

Beginning with the 25th-anniversary celebrations in 2019, you will see even greater things from Open Door.
