Tioga breaks ground on medical facility

TIOGA — Tioga Medical Center and USDA Rural Development broke ground on a new clinic Tuesday that will double the size of the current facility.

The medical center, which serves Divide, Williams, Burke and Mountrail counties, has seen an increase of patients from 6,000 in 2010 to more than 24,000 today. The new 15,000-square-foot clinic, expected to be complete in 2015, will be connected to the existing hospital in Tioga.

USDA committed up to a $6.5 million direct loan and a $1.5 million loan guarantee through The Bank of Tioga for the project. Other financing will come from the Bank of North Dakota and the Tioga Medical Center.
