United Hospital District (UHD) is an independent and award-winning healthcare system that delivers top-notch clinical care with a patient-centered focus. Our provider team of physicians, certified nurse practitioners, and physician assistants enjoy the opportunity to build their practices in a collaborative and supportive environment.
UHD’s location in south central Minnesota is ranked the #4 lowest cost of living in the state, which is already 24.4% lower than the U.S. average (niche.com). You’ll enjoy a suburban lifestyle in a rural setting, with many small businesses providing shopping and retail services. Parks, museums, nearby lakes, and trails afford easy access to leisure and outdoor activities. We are convenient to several larger MN cities, including Mankato (45 miles), Rochester (90 miles) and Minneapolis-St. Paul (125 miles). You’re sure to find anything you’re looking for.
UHD is Growing!
We are continuously adapting to meet the changing healthcare needs of our community. This includes adding staff and services. Most recently, we broke ground on an 8,350 sq. ft. expansion project for the new location of our clinic in Fairmont, MN. Key features include additional enhanced procedure rooms, which will allow for more numbers and types of office-based procedures. The project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2024, at which time UHD’s current Fairmont Clinic will leave its current site and move into the expanded and upgraded new location.
