[Isanti County News, December 7, 2016] Allina Health has turned over the keys to the building that formerly housed its Braham clinic to the East Central Children’s Resource Center, a child advocacy organization.

The donation by Allina Health will allow the building to be used as an advocacy center for abused or neglected children, with the official paperwork signed on Dec. 1.

“Allina Health is pleased to see this building put to use for such a worthy cause,” said Gary Shaw, president of Cambridge Medical Center. “When a group led by the Isanti County Sheriff’s Office approached us about the possibility of using our building, we were happy to have it become a valuable asset for the community.”
