How We Give Back

With growth comes change. And while we cherish our communities, we’re also called to improve them. That’s the future— making everyday life better through boundless vision. Essentia Health’s mission is straightforward: We are called to make a healthy difference in people’s lives. That’s why we do more than care for patients who come through our doors. We get involved in the communities we serve. We want to help all people—you, your friends, your family, your neighbors—live safe, healthy, and active lives.

Our commitment to our communities extends beyond our walls. We actively partner with local agencies and organizations to make a healthy difference in new and innovative ways in the areas that we serve. We are committed to advancing our mission through contributions that support our neighborhoods, like:

  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Churches United in Ministry
  • Healthy School Collaboratives
  • Local Farmer’s Markets
  • American Red Cross
  • Boys & Girls Clubs
  • Children’s Museum
  • First Call for Help
  • United Way

  • Kids’ Closet
  • YMCA
  • Second Harvest Food Bank
  • Salvation Army
  • Passport to Adventure

Together We Thrive

Essentia Health is proud to support our colleagues’ community service hours with the Together We Thrive program. Together We Thrive rewards our colleagues’ volunteerism in the communities we serve with a $100 contribution to the eligible non-profit organization of their choice.

People Like Nowhere Else

It’s the people of this place who inspire us — friends, patients, colleagues, neighbors. Here, we share our lives, our work, our stories. That’s why compassion comes naturally. It’s why people choose to work here. And why people stay here. We are called to make a healthy difference in people’s lives.

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.
