Welcome to the Bemidji Area of the Indian Health Service
Health professionals living and working in the Bemidji Area will find themselves surrounded by thousands of lakes, natural forests, state parks, nature preserves and abundant wildlife. Combined, these spectacular features offer loads of opportunities for recreational pursuits within the five-state Area. No wonder Bemidji is considered a Sportsman’s Paradise.
With a patient population of more than 110,500, the Bemidji Area provides clinical service and support to 34 federally recognized Tribes and four Urban Indian Programs in Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana. The Bemidji Area Office operates three direct service programs at Cass Lake Hospital (Cass Lake, MN), Red Lake Hospital (Red Lake, MN) and White Earth Health Center (Ogema, MN).
The Bemidji Area values commitment to patients and employees, customer service and Tribal consultation. The growth of community-based services results from Tribes becoming more involved with the management of their health care, which is particularly important in the Bemidji Area as many Tribal members are geographically isolated from towns and community centers where health care is available.
