Vermillion Health & Dental Clinic
Bois Forte Band of Chippewa Medical and Dental Clinic Expands Healthcare Capacity in the Region
The construction of the 11,000 sq. ft. Bois Forte Band of Chippewa's Vermillion Health and Dental Clinic improved critical access to healthcare services in the area, serving both Bois Forte Band members and Bois Forte employees.
Adhering to the IHS A/E Design guide, the clinic was designed and completed to provide separate dental and medical wings to provide more privacy to their patients and families and an expansion of their existing services.
The Medical Clinic Wing included six exam rooms, two of which are dedicated to Women's Health and Patient Family Centered Care. In addition, there are two large treatment rooms, a footprint designed for diagnostic imaging and a full medical lab.
The Central Core of the building is used for educational and public access. Educational spaces include rooms for Diabetes Education, Mental and Contract Health, Telemedicine and Private Consulting spaces. A large conference room and Pharmacy Pick up are integrated into the public spaces and waiting areas.
The Dental Clinic Wing has four operatories with expansive views of Lake Vermilion. The orientation of the dental wing provides the patients and their families with a relaxing, inviting atmosphere and premier dental care.
