Advanced primary care center to open in Minot through strategic collaboration

HealthyDakota Mutual Holdings, Crossover Health and Trinity Health to collaborate on VitellaCareSM advanced primary care center in Minot

[Minot, N.D.] HealthyDakota Mutual Holdings, Crossover Health and Trinity Health are collaborating to open VitellaCareSM, an advanced primary care center in Minot later this fall. This collaboration will help increase access to primary care providers and services in Minot and northwest North Dakota. The VitellaCare center in Minot will be managed by Crossover and located within Trinity’s Healthcare Campus and Medical District. Accessibility to these centers will be built into certain Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota individual and group plans. It will offer in-person and virtual access to comprehensive healthcare services and proactive health management.

VitellaCare provides patients with a unique, holistic approach to physical, mental, and emotional well-being. VitellaCare will provide patient-focused care with a primary care provider-led team that includes nurses, doctors and mental health providers for each patient. This approach focuses on preventive, coordinated care that helps patients avoid higher cost care, such as chronic condition management and emergency interventions. Similar centers have achieved up to 15% reduction in total cost of care by reducing the need for more expensive emergency and specialty care and increasing the quality of care. Patients will have many ways to receive care from their team via video visits, messaging, phone and in-person appointments at the center.

"Addressing the rising costs and challenges facing our healthcare system today requires collaboration and innovation," said Dan Conrad, President and CEO of HealthyDakota Mutual Holdings. “With VitellaCare, we have the opportunity with Crossover and Trinity Health to show how we can work together across both new and existing systems to improve the way care is delivered in North Dakota.”

Care services include integrated primary care, wellness check-ups, preventive care, routine lab draws, chronic condition management, mental health consultations and more. VitellaCare is also committed to simple pricing and billing. Patients can expect predictable fees to ensure consistent costs.

“This strategic collaboration represents Trinity’s forward-thinking commitment to advancing healthcare access to primary care and improving community wellbeing,” said John Kutch, President and CEO of Trinity Health.

Crossover Health has opened advanced primary care centers across the country in partnership with a variety of organizations.

“We are excited to partner with HealthyDakota and Trinity Health in what we anticipate will be a catalyst in advancing accessible, high-quality care across the state. We’re thrilled to work with healthcare leaders who share our vision by investing in comprehensive and collaborative health services in North Dakota,” said Scott Shreeve, MD, CEO and Founder of Crossover Health.
