The Fargo VA Health Care System is a Joint Commission accredited, Level-2 facility with a strong academic affiliation which consists of the main facility located at 2101 North Elm, Fargo, ND 58102 and seven community based outpatient clinics, two outreach clinics and one primary outpatient and as well as one telehealth clinic (currently in the acquisition process). The Fargo VA Medical Center oversees the provision of health care provided to 30,983 Veterans living in North Dakota, 19 counties in northwest Minnesota, and two northeast South Dakota counties, with an estimated 251,047 annual outpatient visits, and an operating budget of $169 million.
Comprehensive health care is provided through primary care and long-term care in areas of medicine, surgery, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, neurology, oncology, dentistry, geriatrics and extended care.
The medical center has 39 medical/surgery and psychiatry operating beds, with a full complement of inpatient and outpatient medical, surgical, and mental health services, and an onsite Community Living Center (CLC) of 38 operating beds, providing extended care with a rehabilitation emphasis.
The main medical center consists of 368,395 gross square feet. Construction projects have right sized many rooms and increased patient privacy and satisfaction with conversion to private rooms. An Audiology-Eye-Ophthalmology addition was recently completed and construction is underway to increase the number of exam rooms for Primary Care. A project to replace operating rooms is also underway with completion expected in spring of 2013. These projects will provide approximately 28,000 sq. ft. of space for high profile programs to expand. Construction projects for outpatient treatment space have recently been awarded, which will provide additional examination rooms. A recently awarded construction project for Community Living Center expansion and remodeling will result in a 38 bed state-of-the-art CLC and a more homelike environment for CLC residents. Future projects include expanding Imaging and lab.
