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 6,470 full- and part-time employees and a medical staff of more than 555 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.
