Altru Health System to make 'major announcement'

Altru Health System is set to make a "major announcement" on Thursday.

The Grand Forks-based health care system has scheduled a press conference for noon on Thursday at the Alerus Center to share news about a new affiliation with a "world-class leader in health care."

Altru spokesperson DeAnn Hecht declined to elaborate on the press release announcement sent out to the media this afternoon.

Altru executives will be on hand at the press conference, which is coinciding with Altru's annual meeting, to clarify what the major announcement means to patients in the region.
