Full report: Community health assessments 

This 36-page report captures the conversation and feedback from 260 participants who attended one of nine regional community health dialogues in cities where Allina Health provides health care services.

What does health look like in our community? Take a look at what area residents said about what is -- and is not -- working, and how we can promote community health.

Mercy Hospital is highly involved in improving the health of the communities we serve. Just as we provide care to patients and their families, we also form community partnerships to improve the health of the community around the hospitals.

A dedicated staff works regularly with a wide range of community organizations on a variety of activities that reach outside our hospital and into the community. Through these activities, we not only improve the quality of life in our communities, we also help prevent medical problems from becoming serious.

Together, as neighbors and partners, we work to make our community a healthier place to live.
