The Organization

Rooted in suburban Minneapolis, Minnesota, Park Nicollet Health Services (PNHS) is an integrated health care delivery organization. The two largest entities that comprise PNHS are Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital, a 426-bed community hospital located in St. Louis Park, and Park Nicollet Clinic, a 500-plus, physician multi-specialty group with 25 offices in Minneapolis and its southern, western, and northern suburbs.  PNHS truly is an integrated system, as processes of care are designed and managed across these entities to optimize the delivery of care for the patients and communities served.

What makes us unique?

Park Nicollet Health Services is a strong, stable and organically grown multi-specialty group practice within the affluent and highly educated western Twin City metropolitan area.  PNHS has a long-standing commitment to quality, proficiency and stewardship, and has embarked on a pioneering effort to study, adopt and integrate the Toyota Production System's Lean Methodology (Kaizen), enhancing previous gains realized from its Six Sigma efforts. Although PNHS has developed and engaged in strong business partnerships with local competitors, having a single hospital focus adds to its list of strengths and advantages.  PNHS was one of the first integrated healthcare systems in the nation to adopt a unit medical record that is now electronic and ubiquitous.
