Welcome to Cook County North Shore Hospital & Care Center.
On Monday and Wednesday mornings, Ultrasound is available at Cook County North Shore Hospital and Care Center. The exams that can be done here are abdomens, carotids, thyroids, scrotum, pelvic, pregnancies and exams for blood clots. All exams need to be ordered by a physician, but do not need to be ordered locally. To schedule an exam or if you have any questions, call the Radiology department at 218-387-3268.
August is here! It will be a fun-filled month for elders at the North Shore Care Center beginning with Fisherman's Picnic weekend when families and friends are back in town.
The residents will be treated to fishburgers on Friday night provided by the Grand Marais Lions Club. Several folks will also participate in the parade on Sunday, so watch for us on the Arrowhead bus. We will be making some noise to thank Arrowhead Transit for 40 years of outstanding service in northeastern Minnesota. Happy 40th Anniversary!
