St. Cloud Hospital
St. Cloud Hospital has a rich tradition of caring for the people of Central Minnesota. Since being founded by the Sisters of the Order of St. Benedict in 1886, we have grown from a small, community hospital to a comprehensive, high-quality regional medical center.
As the largest health care facility in the region, St. Cloud Hospital offers a full spectrum of inpatient and outpatient services. From state-of-the-art care for heart disease and cancer to preventive health screenings and behavioral health counseling, we have the technology and skilled professionals to meet the needs of the region.
Currently the hospital has nearly 5,000 employees and a medical staff of 400 physicians. St. Cloud Hospital is the largest employer in the St. Cloud area.
As a Catholic, regional hospital, we improve the health and quality of life for the people we serve in a manner that reflects the healing mission of Jesus.
Through our Catholic healing ministry, St. Cloud Hospital will be the leader in Minnesota for quality, safety, service, and value.
