The Bemidji Area administers several Service Units which provide care through IHS practitioners. It also administers federally recognized tribal and urban programs which deliver services through health care providers hired directly by the tribes. Many tribal members are geographically isolated from the urban facilities and community health centers and must rely on a team approach of IHS, tribal, and contract providers for their health care needs. Facilities range from community health stations and walk-in first-aid centers to fully staffed hospitals and clinics. Preventive education and health screening are stressed in an effort to control some of the Area's chronic health problems.
