Dr. Patrick Arnold of our West St. Paul Clinic is retiring June 30, 2015!

Dear Patients,
After 41 wonderful years practicing medicine, I will be retiring as of June 30, 2015. I started at the Gorman Clinic (now Entira West St Paul) in July 1974 when it was located on Gorman Avenue in West St. Paul.  In 1976, the clinic moved to its current location. In those 41 years,   I have delivered hundreds of babies, watched as the infants grew into adults and delivered a second generation of babies as well.  Read More

Health Plan Assistance Supports Clinic’s Vision of Sustainable Independent Primary Care 
Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Blue Cross) and Entira Family Clinics (Entira) today announced a collaboration that advances the organizations’ shared goals: fostering affordable, high quality health care while supporting and preserving a place for independent primary care in the health care system.

Through the terms of the agreement, Blue Cross will provide technical and financial assistance to Entira’s group of 12 physician-owned clinics in St. Paul and the Twin Cities east metro area. The Blue Cross assistance will support the design and development of an enhanced patient-care model. This new model will empower Entira to further evolve from the traditional approach of individual physician care to a method that uses a physician-led team-based care coordination and collaboration with patients. In creating this new model, Entira also is focused on integrating community health resources such as social service agencies.Read more.
