Altru Performance Center and Sports Advantage

Grand Forks, North Dakota

A world-class healthcare system and a global leader in human performance have combined in a sweat equity partnership to provide personalized therapy, fitness, and nutrition services to children, adults, and seniors.  The new Altru Therapy and Performance Center is a clean and fresh facility for all of Altru Health System’s therapy services, which were previously located in separate spaces around the community.

The new Performance Center creates efficiencies for the patients, providers, and staff with a shared entrance lobby – off of which is situated two private waiting areas, one for children’s therapy and the other for EXOS – and clear patient flow and wayfinding.  The therapy gym is greatly expanded from the former space, and a new children’s sensory gym adds much-desired services to the program.

"It's more user-friendly for the therapist, so they can combine things, they can be more creative with how they want to structure their treatment-kind of a one-stop shop."
Lynn Ophaug, Manager of Outpatient Therapy
