Our History

In 1910, a group of Northfield physicians formed the Northfield Hospital Association and with community support purchased a three-story house on the corner of Eighth and Water streets for Northfield’s first community hospital.

The 12-bed facility at Eighth and Water served the community well for many years, but during the Great Depression it struggled financially. In 1934, the city assumed responsibility for the hospital. In 1938, the community received a Works Progress Administration (WPA) grant and built a new 31-bed hospital on West Second Street.

Between 1938 and 1992, there were four major expansions and the addition of a skilled nursing facility. In 2003, construction was completed on a $30 million, 37-bed facility with a 40-bed long-term care center on land leased from St. Olaf College north of the college campus.

Since then, Northfield Hospital & Clinics has become a regional medical destination supporting primary and specialty care clinics in five area communities with inpatient, surgical services, birth center, cancer center, breast care center, women’s health center, advanced medical imaging, emergency medicine, sleep medicine and more.

Our employees drive our success, and our reputation. We value great employees, and offer competitive salaries and a variety of benefits. It's our commitment to maintaining an excellent work force. Full-time and part-time employees are able to select benefits to meet their needs.  Benefits are available for employees hired  to work 40 hours per two week pay period (.5 FTE).
