A healthcare industry that's strong, growing
The healthcare industry is a major economic segment in the Brainerd Lakes Area. Essentia Health in Brainerd/Baxter and the Cuyuna Regional Medical Center in Crosby are strong and growing facilities that have excellent reputations for the high level of care they provide. As two of the biggest employers in the Brainerd Lakes Area, they continue to attract quality healthcare providers and employees who are drawn to this area for its quality of life.
Essentia, CRMC lead the way
