Perham native Adams hired as clinic manager at MeritCare Detroit Lakes

Breanna Adams

Born and raised in Perham, Breanna Adams has been hired as MeritCare Detroit Lakes clinic manager.

She has a bachelor of arts degree in health care administration and long-term care administration from Concordia College, Moorhead, and a master of science degree in public, human and health services administration from Minnesota State University Moorhead.

For the past four years, Adams worked in the Twin Cities for HealthLink Minnesota Management Group, Inc. The company served the needs of primary and specialty care practices throughout the Upper Midwest, offering a range of medical practice business services and support.

As the MeritCare Detroit Lakes clinic manager, Adams will work to position the clinic to successfully face the ever-changing demands of today's rural America health care environment and to provide the best possible care to patients.

According to Adams, "It is a very exciting time for MeritCare in general, but also for MeritCare Detroit Lakes. We are breaking ground in March on a $15 million expansion and remodel project. It includes a same day surgery center, expanded imaging services, laboratory and clinic space for more providers. The expanded clinic will grow to serve as a medical hub for MeritCare patients in many communities surrounding Detroit Lakes. We offer many medical specialty services closer to home, with that small town feel; rather than having people drive to Fargo."

Adams is married. She and her husband Curt have a son, Isaac, who is 18 months old. She is the daughter of Steve and Connie Richter of Perham. When she's not working, Adams enjoys time with family and friends, golf, volleyball, basketball, and softball.
