Building a Future for Rural Healthcare: An Interview with Mille Lacs Health System CEO Bill Nelson

In an interview with Bill Nelson, CEO of Mille Lacs Health System (MLHS), MEDHOST President Ken Misch had the chance to discuss MLHS’s recent renovations, the broader issues facing rural healthcare providers, and how MEDHOST works with Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) to meet their evolving needs.

When MLHS opened its doors in 1956, it was a community-owned, non-profit facility with two satellite clinics. Over the past 40 years, it has grown into a network of five clinics, a nursing home, an ambulatory emergency care center, home care, and a hospice serving almost 25,000 central Minnesotans.

By integrating HIT systems through a collaborative partnership with MEDHOST, MLHS has consistently provided exceptional care to the people of Mille Lacs County and the surrounding area, despite undergoing rapid change.

MEDHOST is proud to partner with organizations like MLHS as they grow to meet their population health needs more completely. To learn more about how MEDHOST helps address the demands of rural and community hospitals across the country, please get in touch with us at or call 1.800.383.6278.
