While the medical campus is in Crosby, Minnesota, CRMC draws market share from a much broader region in Central Minnesota. With 25 operating beds and $120 million in net patient revenues, CRMC has established itself as a key asset in the beautiful lake country of eastern Crow Wing County. CRMC has strategically partnered with health systems and institutions in Minnesota to provide a broad array of services that are not typically provided by critical access hospitals and has numerous branded service lines.
This healthcare system is a testimony to the positive, can-do spirit of its leadership, physicians, and staff. Working together, looking for ways to make things happen, they have established an integrated, 40-acre campus with a state-of-the-art hospital with technologically advanced surgical suites, advanced life support ambulance service, senior housing, and a long-term care facility. There are also three additional physician clinics in Baxter, Breezy Point and Longville. CRMC has 1,020 employees and an active medical staff of over 60 physicians and 23 advanced practice providers, which includes 15 surgeons and 45 primary care providers. More than 8,500 surgeries are performed annually at CRMC. The organization has a strong balance sheet with a solid operating margin and is the largest employer on the Cuyuna Range and the second largest employer in Crow Wing County. CRMC has been recognized nationally, regionally, and in the state for its excellence. The hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission Accreditation; The Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons; and by the Commission on Office Laboratory Accreditation.
