About Us

For over 65 years, First Care Health Center has been dedicated to serving the people of Park River, North Dakota, and the surrounding area. FCHC is a nonprofit, community-based, critical access hospital and rural health clinic. FCHC is governed by an 11 member Board of Directors. In 2007, the facility completed a $7.5 million building and renovation project, including a new clinic addition and a completely modernized inpatient area and emergency room, as well as general updates throughout the facility. Recently, in 2019, the Outpatient Expansion Project was completed which enhanced patient care and patient privacy. The 2019 project renovated existing space and created an addition that conveniently placed outpatient services, including same day procedures, on the first floor. This enhances staff efficiency and patient privacy and provides alternative options for treatment and emergency service areas. These changes help us continue to serve the current and future healthcare needs of the people of Park River and the surrounding area. Our providers and staff are here for you - all day, every day, all year to provide "professional care with a personal touch."
