Riverwood introduces comprehensive women’s health team

Riverwood Healthcare Center has a team of experienced providers offering advanced and comprehensive women’s health care.

“We were happy to welcome Dr. Alisha Lindberg, obstetrician and gynecologist, to our women’s health care team in October,” said Cindi Baker, Riverwood chief operating officer. “She joins Dr. Jennifer Tessmer-Tuck and Nurse Midwife Megan Workman in offering weekly care at our specialty clinic in Aitkin.”

Baker adds: “Riverwood is dedicated to providing exceptional, compassionate women’s health care through all life stages. The level of expertise and experience these three providers offer is truly remarkable for our small rural community. We have included a brief bio for each here.”
