Hutchinson Health announces plan to join HealthPartners

McLEOD, HENNEPIN COUNTIES, MN – The Hutchinson Health board of directors announced Wednesday its intent that Hutchinson Health join HealthPartners.

The affiliation will bring together two strong organizations and expand capabilities to better serve patients and the community. Hutchinson Health will retain its name and remain a distinct, locally-governed entity as part of HealthPartners.

“We believe that the best care is delivered close to home when possible, and we looked for a partnership that would strengthen our ability to serve our community and broaden access to convenient specialty services in our area,” said Steven Mulder, MD, president and CEO of Hutchinson Health. “We were impressed with the culture of HealthPartners, their level of achievement in providing quality, cost-effective care, and their commitment to the communities they serve.”

With a 66-bed, Level 3 Trauma Center, including 12 mental health beds, and primary and specialty clinics, Hutchinson Health has a five-decade tradition of providing excellent care in its community.

“Through our conversations, we’ve found that our organizations share like-minded missions and cultures, with similar goals for the importance of high-quality, affordable care that’s local,” said Andrea Walsh, president and CEO of HealthPartners. “We are excited by the opportunity to sustain and strengthen Hutchinson Health’s rich history as an outstanding community partner. We are committed to increasing access to top specialists, technology and services in Hutchinson and central Minnesota.”

The organizations expect to finalize their affiliation in 2018.

Howard Lake woman hurt in crash

WRIGHT COUNTY, MN – A woman from Howard Lake was hurt in a two-vehicle crash in Rockford this morning (Sept. 12), according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

The report stated that Luann Lorraine Ryks, 62, of Howard Lake, was driving a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country east on Highway 55, attempting to turn left onto Main Street in Rockford just before 6 a.m.

As the Chrysler entered the intersection, it collided with a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado that was westbound on Highway 55. The Chevrolet, driven by Dennis Ryan Fogarty, 38, of Plymouth, went off the road to the right and struck a pedestrian post at the semaphore.

The airbags of both vehicles were deployed, and both drivers were wearing seatbelts.

Ryks was transported the North Memorial Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. The report stated that Fogarty also had non-life threatening injuries, but was not taken to a health care facility.

The Wright County Sheriff’s Office, Allina Health, and the Rockford Fire Department assisted at the scene.
