DULUTH — Essentia Health is reopening its Miller Hill surgery center and pharmacy Wednesday, the health care system announced Tuesday afternoon.

The facilities have been closed since March 14, when a portion of the Miller Hill Mall's roof collapsed. No Essentia properties were damaged by the collapse, but its facilities have gradually reopened over the last week as structural inspections were made.

Essentia reopened its Center for Personal Fitness on Saturday. The Therapy and Performance Center, Polinsky Medical Rehabilitation Center and Essentia Health-Miller Hill Clinic in the Miller Hill Health Plaza resumed regular operating hours Monday.

All patient appointments will resume as scheduled.

Being allowed to return and reopening aren’t the same thing. Nevertheless, some tenants were able to head back Sunday.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
