About HealthEast

At HealthEast, our patients are our neighbors and we are dedicated to their, and our, optimal health and well-being. We are guided by our faith-based heritage, a call to healing that respects the dignity and culture of every person. We empower our patients with user-friendly access to their health information, dependable service, and affordable, high-quality care.

We put new, more efficient models of care into practice, allowing our 7,500 employees and 850 physicians to focus on what’s important: providing compassionate health care that puts the patient and their needs first. With 14 clinics, home care, a medical transportation center, and four hospitals — Bethesda Hospital, St. John’s Hospital, St. Joseph’s Hospital, and Woodwinds Health Campus — we provide excellent family health and specialization, including primary, maternity, orthopaedics and post-acute care.

Spiritual philosophy

HealthEast was created when four health care organizations merged. Each organization was rooted in the Christian tradition, from which it heard God's call to "love your neighbor." As a response to that call, each sought to provide a ministry of healing for all throughout the Twin Cities East Metro area. Inspired by this heritage, HealthEast remains committed to a ministry of compassion and healing in a way that respects the dignity of every person and honors her/his faith, culture and community.
