Please alert a staff member if there is anything we can assist you with.

We know how important the love and support of friends and family is during a hospital stay. Therefore, we welcome visitors at any time of the day, although after certain hours you may have to sign in through the emergency department. Please be sure to bring a valid ID. 

Please keep children accompanied at all times and please do not visit if you are feeling unwell yourself.

Weapons of any kind are prohibited on Mille Lacs Health System property, except when in the possession of a commissioned federal, state or local law enforcement/correctional officer.


The Gift Shop, located at the entrance of the hospital, is staffed by volunteer Auxiliary members. It is this small shop that makes most of the profits that are contributed to Mille Lacs Health System and Mille Lacs Area Health Foundation.


You’re never far away from delicious food. The Mille Lacs Health System cafeteria is located near the Healing Garden, so if the weather is nice, you can eat outdoors on the benches in the garden. The Cafeteria is open Monday - Friday.
