Inside St. John’s
- Our official greeter: Young and old alike may be thrilled to visit our official greeter, Lucy Van Pelt. Located at our main entrance, this Peanuts character was one of many statues in the 2002 Peanutson Parade event in St. Paul. Long-time HealthEast contributors and volunteers, David and Mary Jo Monson, won the bid that brought Lucy to St. John's campus. Feel free to have your photo taken with Lucy — this is a favorite of families with their newborns.
- Fireplace: If you would like to get away for a few minutes without leaving St. John's campus, we invite you to relax in our fireplace area. Settle back in the comfortable chairs and tables around the fireplace. This popular spot for visitors is located on first floor near the main entrance, within easy distance of our vending area and Ginkgo Coffee and Smoothie Bar.
- Gallery of Art: If you are on first floor, stroll through our Gallery of Art, located near the vending area. The featured local artist changes monthly and works can be purchased at the Information Desk.
- Walking paths: If you're looking to stretch your muscles, try our walking paths. Depending on how much time you have, there are short and long versions, both of which are well-marked with words of encouragement through our parking lot. Ask for a map at the Information Desk.
