Essentia Health welcomes Dr. Richard Castle

Dr. Richard Castle, a hospitalist, has joined Essentia Health-St. Josephs Medical Center in Brainerd, Minnesota.

"One of the reasons I chose this opportunity was the comfortable feeling I got when I visited the hospital and explored the Brainerd Lakes area," says Dr. Castle. "I feel there is a real focus on patient care here, and that is very important to me."

Dr. Castle earned a medical degree from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He completed a residency in internal medicine at Sovah-Danville Regional Medical Center in Danville, Virginia.

As part of the hospitalist team, Dr. Castle will care for patients that are hospitalized due to illness or injury. "I like the broad range of patients I get to take care of and I really enjoy the pace and atmosphere of the hospital environment," he explains.
