Medical Staff

The physicians at LifeCare Medical Center provide invaluable service. Our physicians offer knowledge and experience beyond the scope of most small town family doctors. This special group of providers are diverse in their medical skill sets as well as in their hobbies and interests that take them far beyond the familiar white coat. What they share, however, is an appreciation for Roseau County’s quality of life, strong sense of family and community, and the steady growth of the hospital, and healthcare system.

LifeCare Physicians are credentialed to provide care at LifeCare Medical Center, however they are employed by Altru Health System.
