About Us

Fast Facts

St. Francis Regional Medical Center is jointly owned by the Essentia Health Critical Access Group, Allina Health and Park Nicollet Health Services. Its Catholic identity is sponsored by the Benedictine Sisters of the St. Scholastica Monastery through Essentia Health. This unique structure enables us to combine the caring and compassion of a community hospital with the modern medical technology, specialties and services found in the metro area. We provide a full range of inpatient, outpatient and emergency care services on a collaborative medical campus with more than 30 other providers.
