Mission Message

At Essentia Health, our mission guides us every day: We are called to make a healthy difference in people’s lives. This calling resonates deeply for our caregivers and our colleagues working behind the scenes, who all bring high-quality, compassionate care to the patients we are privileged to serve.

Our commitment to our communities extends beyond the walls of our hospitals, clinics and long-term care facilities. We partner with other agencies and organizations to make a healthy difference in new and innovative ways. It’s another way we live our mission.
