Unity Hospital is one of the Twin Cities’ premier community hospitals, offering leading edge technology, equipment, procedures, modern facilities, highly skilled professionals and a sense of family and community. More than ever, Unity Hospital reflects the power of its name – the unity in community.
Unity Hospital was founded in 1966 by the North Suburban Hospital District. The Hospital District and its five community members – Blaine, Fridley, Hilltop, Mounds View and Spring Lake Park continue to financially support the hospital. Their ongoing dedication is one of Unity’s most important traditions. The hospital’s outstanding care continues to serve residents of these founding communities, while welcoming new residents from more than 20 additional communities, including the rapidly growing cities of Ham Lake and Lino Lakes.
Serving patients in the Twin Cities north metro
Since 1966, Unity Hospital has been improving the health of the people in the northwestern Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area. Unity's service area includes the Minnesota cities of Blaine, Fridley, Hilltop, Mounds View and Spring Lake Park. Unity's care is noted as exceptional by national health care rating groups. Employees and patients often mention the “family feel” of Unity.
Unity Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission, a not-for-profit agency that serves to ensure and monitor the quality and safety of patient care. The hospital is also certified by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and licensed by the Minnesota Department of Health.

World-class health care in your own backyard
Unity Hospital is proud to be your neighborhood Allina Health hospital offering you world-class care. We're growing like never before, and you’ll see changes everywhere at Unity. Here are just some of the ways we're changing to serve you better:
Unity Hospital is in better shape than ever.
Our newly renovated and expanded ER offers private rooms with amenities like individually controlled lighting and temperature for your comfort, and flat-screen televisions and telephones to keep you connected. Click here to see a slide show of our new ER.
Unity Hospital broke ground on a new cancer center in December 2009 to give patients in the north metro comprehensive and integrative cancer care in a single location. The Viriginia Piper Cancer Institute at Unity Hospital is expected to open fall 2010.
The new center, in partnership with Minnesota Oncology, will include a state-of-the-art cancer clinic, laboratory, and chemotherapy infusion center. Other services offered in the center will include clinical trials; financial, genetic and nutritional counseling; and clinical nurse specialists.
Unity Hospital works closely with Allina Medical Clinics throughout the Twin Cities to provide hospital services when needed. We are proud to announce two new Allina Medical Clinic locations in Blaine and Brooklyn Park recently opened and are accepting new patients.
Our ER is prepared for any trauma, any time. Unity recently was awarded a Level III Trauma designation by the Minnesota State-wide Trauma System of the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). Unity is one of only seven hospitals in Minnesota to receive this designation.
Unity is a leading hospital in the Twin Cities for comprehensive, personalized weight loss surgery care. Now you can watch one of these surgeries live on our web site, through a new technology called OR-Live that brings people into the operating room through the internet.
Electronic Medical Records
Eliminating paper patient records at all our Allina Health hospitals, clinics and pharmacies, our electronic medical records means you only need to provide your health information once, and it is immediately available at any Allina Health hospital or clinic. Your provider can view your complete medical history with a few computer mouse clicks and get your test results sooner. It also better connects your health care information with your Allina Health care team -- your primary care doctor, hospital team of nurses and doctors, and your pharmacist, providing you with the best care possible.
As you can see, Unity Hospital is changing and growing to meet the needs of our community. We invite you to call or e-mail us with questions, or stop in to see the changes for yourself!

Top Performer on Key Quality Measures
Unity Hospital was recognized by The Joint Commission for exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.
Unity Hospital was among 1,099 hospitals in the U.S. earning the distinction of Top Performer on Key Quality Measures®. The list of Top Performer organizations represents 33 percent of all Joint Commission-accredited hospitals reporting accountability measure performance data for 2012.
"The Joint Commission distinction recognizes our commitment to quality improvement and evidence-based practices that directly contribute to better health outcomes for our patients," said Daniel McGinty, executive vice president of Hospitals and Specialty Services for Allina Health.
Each accountability measure represents an evidence-based practice, such as giving aspirin at arrival for heart attack patients or giving antibiotics one hour before surgery.
