As part of our Commitment to Care, Allina Health has continued requiring masks in all our facilities and recently announced required influenza and COVID vaccine policies as added safety measures for our patients and staff. Allina Health will begin requiring COVID-19 vaccination by Oct. 1, 2021 for all employees, volunteers, students and contracted staff, with limited exemptions for medical or religious reasons. By January 1, 2022 all employees, volunteers, students and contracted staff must receive the influenza vaccination with limited exemptions.


Community support plays a vital role in helping our hospitals and programs provide the latest advances in patient care, promote healing environments and foster community health.

Employee volunteerism

mission matters

Mission Matters is an easy way for Allina Health employees to get engaged in their communities through volunteering and helping determine where Allina Health charitable contributions are made.

After employees log 20 volunteer hours with a qualifying organization on allina.volunteermatch.org, a $100 Dollars for Doers contribution is made to the nonprofit organization of their choice. In addition, if at least five employees participate in a charity walk, run or ride, Allina Health contributes $250 to the event's benefiting organization. Dollars increase with participation, up to $5,000.
