Owatonna Hospital has a long tradition of providing quality health care for people living in Steele County and its surrounding communities. It's grown from a small city hospital nearly 110 years ago to a comprehensive, high quality, regional medical facility.

Owatonna Hospital offers a full spectrum of services for residents of the region, with specialties in surgery and trauma care. Part of Allina Health, Owatonna Hospital brings together expert staff and leading-edge technology in a healing, family-centered environment.

Our hospital's family-centered design features private rooms, complete with sleeper chairs for family members, and private corridors and elevators to move patients to and from their rooms.

The hospital was designed with patient healing in mind. All inpatient rooms enjoy a view to the outside. Indoor and outdoor walking trails, outdoor gardens and patio provide opportunities for patients and their families to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
