About Us

Cuyuna Regional Medical Center

Cuyuna Regional Medical Center consists of a 25-bed critical access hospital; five physician clinics located in Crosby, Baxter, Breezy Point, Longville, and Super One in Crosby; a 48-bed nursing home; and is a partner with Presbyterian Homes and Services in operating a senior living community with 50 independent living apartments, 36 assisted living apartments, 12 memory care apartments, and 16 memory care suites. A locally governed 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, CRMC is the second largest employer in Crow Wing County.

A community-built facility, CRMC serves more than 60,000 people in the Brainerd Lakes, an area known as Minnesota’s vacation destination because of its beautiful lakes and woodlands offering a variety of outdoor recreation opportunities. With an average daily census of 18 patients, CRMC serves approximately 2,200 inpatients and 150,000 outpatients annually and has nearly 10,000 ER visits and about 260 births. The majority of CRMC’s patients, 65 percent, reside in Brainerd, Baxter, Longville, Aitkin, Onamia, and their surrounding areas. Another 35 percent of its patients live in the Hospital Districts of Bay Lake, Crosby, Cuyuna, Dean Lake, Deerwood, Emily, Fairfield, Fifty Lakes, Irondale, Ironton, Little Pine, Perry Lake, Rabbit Lake, Riverton, Trommald, and Wolford.

CRMC furthers its mission by promoting the health of the community through programs and activities that foster health, healing, and wellness. CRMC knows that much of what influences health happens outside of the hospital or doctor’s office – in our schools, workplaces, and neighborhoods. Just as its care teams devote themselves to meeting the needs of patients, CRMC is driven to address its specific community health needs with wellness screenings, health education, health fairs, and other community outreach. CRMC proactively recruits the physicians and specialists needed to meet the community’s healthcare needs and works hard to retain its medical staff. CRMC strives to know what kind of providers are going to be needed and then plans and allocates resources accordingly. The organization also assesses the demographics and practice patterns of current staff to show potential recruiting candidates that there is a need for their services.

CRMC is governed by a 10-member, non-profit Board of Directors consisting of five leaders who live in areas geographically representative of CRMC’s service area, two District Board members, two medical staff, and the CEO. The Board’s primary responsibility is to assure the services provided by CRMC meet community standards, promote patient safety, and ensure the hospital is providing the highest quality of health care services to the communities CRMC serves. CRMC also has an 18-member District Board elected by residents of its communities.

A Rich Part of Brainerd Lakes History

CRMC got its start in the 1950s, when the old Miner’s Hospital closed and 17 Cuyuna Range cities and townships joined together to build a new district hospital. Those communities have worked together to keep high-quality healthcare local for more than 50 years. Today, over 900 CRMC doctors, nurses, healthcare professionals, and support staff continue our mission to build a proactive, high-tech, patient-centered medical community.

A State-of-the-Art Medical Campus

Over the years, strategic local partnerships and strong community support have enabled CRMC to evolve into a state-of-the-art medical campus that offers an array of services to residents throughout the region. In addition to a critical-access hospital, CRMC manages five physician clinics and a senior living community consisting of a care center, assisted living and memory care.
