Unity Hospital

Hospital overview

Unity Hospital

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.

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.
