Hutchinson Health

Trusted care in Hutchinson since 1922

At Hutchinson Health, we’ve been caring for the Hutchinson community for more than a century. From the day our doors opened in 1922, our physicians and staff have been committed to building long-term patient relationships and improving health care in Hutchinson – and beyond. Today, our combined hospital and clinic campus, as well as our nearby clinic locations, allows us to offer comprehensive health services, close to home.

Hutchinson Health is part of the HealthPartners care group, which serves patients across Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Being a part of something bigger means that we’re able to connect you to specialized care from many doctors in our care system, right here in Hutchinson. We partner with TRIA to provide a full range of orthopedic care services close to home. We also work closely with our partner hospitals and clinics in the area, including Olivia and Methodist Hospitals. Together, we’re working to enhance health and well-being across Minnesota.

Our experienced team is comprised of the leading doctors, specialists and surgeons in the region. We’ve been named a Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital by the Chartis Group, and have been recognized by the Minnesota Hospital Association for superior performance in quality and patient safety.

Whether you need an annual checkup, want to schedule a therapy session or you’re planning to welcome a new baby, we’re here with the expertise and personalized care you deserve.

Since we welcomed our first patients 100 years ago, some things have evolved over time: medical advancements, innovative technology and even our location. But what’s never changed is our dedication to providing compassionate care to every patient, every time.

Welcome to our new family medicine physician Dr. Hilary Kerrick.

Dr. Kerrick graduated from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed her residency in family medicine at Wilson Memorial Regional Medical Center where she was chief resident. When asked about her work, she said,

“I am a family medicine doctor who enjoys taking care of people of all ages and caring for families. I became a doctor so I could take care of the whole patient. I like to focus on care options that are affordable, attainable and aligned with patients’ goals and values. My goal is to help improve quality of life through better health. I love getting to know my patients and their families.”

"As a patient, I’ve experienced care from multiple areas of Hutchinson Health in the last couple of years. And every time, I was treated by professional, caring and compassionate staff, nurses and doctors. I never once doubted that I was getting the best care possible. Without hesitation, I would recommend Hutchinson Health."
