Methodist Hospital opened its doors in 1959 with 276 beds. As the 20th century drew to a close, the hospital merged with Park Nicollet Clinic, and the newly named Park Nicollet Foundation expanded its mission to serve community health needs. Today the hospital has grown to 426 beds and admits more than 30,000 patients annually, but the foundation’s mission of partnering to build healthy lives is still the heart of our work.
We continually strive to enhance the patient and family experience, promote innovation and research and respond to the health care needs of our community. Together with Park Nicollet, we work with schools, nonprofits, community agencies and local governments to develop innovative solutions to complex community health issues - all with the support of generous and compassionate donors.
As part of the Affordable Care Act, non-profit hospitals complete a Community Needs Health Assessment every three years. Hospitals must collect input from the community, adopt a plan to address community needs and then report on these activities.
In 2018, we were part of a comprehensive CHNA that included all the hospitals in the HealthPartners system. In consult with The Improve Group, the assessment analyzed health data and input from community members to identify the biggest needs.
Those top needs are:
