About us

Top care you can count on from an established organization committed to partnering with patients.

Quality care for patients at Regions Hospital

A lot has changed since Regions Hospital opened its doors in 1872. But one thing has remained constant– and that’s our commitment to our patients and quality of care.

What’s our commitment? Our mission is simple: to improve health and well-being in partnership with our members, patients and the community. How do we live our mission from day to day? Our Head + Heart, together, motto. This means we partner with our patients and families in everything we do – from making care decisions to developing our Centers of Excellence.

Centers of Excellence mean top-quality specialty care

What we’re really known for is our specialty care. Our Centers of Excellence are led by highly skilled doctors, surgeons, rehabilitation specialists, nurses and staff members. Patients come to Regions because of our top-quality care in places like our:

  • Burn Center: More than 50 years of expertise in everything from chemical burns to frostbite at our nationally recognized burn center. This means that you’ll get the highest level of treatment and support you need.
  • Cancer Care Center: Everything starts with our 48-hour promise – so you see an oncologist within 48 hours of your diagnosis. You get expert care for almost all types of cancer.
  • Heart Center: Comprehensive treatment and care programs for all types of heart conditions. This means that you’ll get top care and personalized treatment, from complex surgery to simple tests.
  • Level 1 Adult Trauma Center and Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center: We can handle the most complex injuries. This means you’ll receive the highest level of care possible for an accident or serious injury.
  • Neuroscience Centers: Highly specialized care for your brain and spine, including our Spine Center, Minnesota’s first Comprehensive Stroke Center, neurosurgeons and neurologists. This means our multidisciplinary teams have the expertise to care for any neurological disorders.

We always work to improve care by conducting ongoing research from our Critical Care Research Center. See how Regions has been recognized for award-winning care.
