Are you a member of Medicare? You’re entitled to FREE “Annual Wellness Visits.” These visits are 100% covered by Medicare with no out of pocket expense to you. You can have your Annual Wellness Visit at our clinics.
Yearly preventative wellness visits are a way to have honest conversations with members of your health care team to discuss health concerns, identify any health risks, and help you to make positive lifestyle changes so you can get or stay as healthy as possible.
A free group workshop designed to help family caregivers take care of themselves while caring for a relative or friend. Whether you are helping a parent, spouse, or friend who lives at home, in assisted living, or in a nursing home, you will benefit from the tools presented in this program. You will learn strategies to better handle the unique caregiver challenges you face, as well as how to reduce stress, communicate more effectively, make tough decisions, and reduce feelings of guilt, anger, and depression.

It’s a sure sign of Spring: The annual Northfield Hospital Auxiliary Book Fair. The 2019 Book Fair will take place April 23-27 at the Northfield Ice Arena on Highway 3.
This Northfield tradition got its humble start 58 years ago on the back porch of an Auxiliary member’s home. (At the time, members thought they might collect enough books to do the sale once.)
Now in its 58th year, the Book Fair has raised a total of $1,000,000 since 1961 – including a record $67,532 in sales last year.
Plans are moving forward to expand both the Northfield Clinic and the Birth Center in 2019. The Northfield Clinic has outgrown its space, with new providers and more patients for family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine and specialty care. We need more space for these growing services, and any new services.The Birth Center now welcomes about 550 babies a year. The current space would be great if babies came on a steady schedule two or three at a time – but babies come when they’re ready, and more space will let us accommodate more births at the same time.

Organ donation saves and heals lives. Hospitals play a delicate role as a bridge between donors and recipients.
LifeSource honored Northfield Hospital with an Excellence in Donation Award for facilitating organ and tissue donation every time the opportunity arose in 2017. By fostering a culture of donation, we can create something positive in the moment of loss when a loved one dies. One person can save and heal up to 75 lives through organ, eye and tissue donation.
Northfield Hospital + Clinics honored 101 employees – with a combined 1,134 years of service – at its annual Length of Service Awards.
Each year, NH+C celebrates staff anniversaries for those hitting a five-year milestone – from five years (40 employees) to 35 and 40 years (one employee each).
The Long Term Care Center earned a 5-star rating – the most stars possible – for 2018 from CMS, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
