Minnesota Community Measurement has recognized Essentia Health and several of its clinics for outstanding performance in its report and named the health care provider among the top five medical groups for overall depression case outcomes.

The independent nonprofit organization uses data to drive improvement. Its report entitled “Depression Care in Minnesota: Adults and Adolescents” is based on care provided in 2019.

The health care system was also cited as a “High Performer,” scoring above the statewide average on at least 50% of the measures in which they were eligible.

Essentia was above average in the following “adult” measures: six-month follow-up; response at six months; remission at six months; 12-month follow-up; response at 12 months; and remission at 12 months.
