All of those amenities combine with outstanding, accessible health care to create a high quality of life for the region's citizens.
That top quality health care is where District One Hospital comes in, an acute care hospital with 66 beds (licensed for 99) that serves approximately 35,000 residents in the southern half of Rice County. Officially called the "hospital district," District One encompasses eight of the 14 townships in Rice County, as well as the cities of Faribault, Morristown, and Nerstrand. Faribault's Healthcare Campus holds two multi-specialty clinics serve the area, The Faribault Clinic-Allina Medical Group and the Cannon Valley Clinic-Mayo Health System, who play a major role in health care. The Orthopedic and Fracture Clinic and Rehab One are also situated on the campus in a new state-of-the-art facility opened in 2009.
Residents, for the most part, can stay in the area when it comes to seeking health care, thanks to a growing array of services that is uncommon for a community the size of Faribault. Accordingly, the concept of responding to a community's needs truly fits our hospital.
