A Century of Stories

Since 1922, Trinity Health employees have provided advanced, innovative healthcare to families in northwestern North Dakota. The kind of healthcare that may have included life saving measures, acute intervention, or healing broken hearts with a kind word, a reassuring look, or a hand to hold. There are no gestures that pale in comparison to others, no stories that are better than yours.

Please share how Trinity Health has impacted your life and is Making More Possible for you, your loved ones, or your community.

A century
of care

Trinity's story officially begins in 1922 at Zion Lutheran Church in Minot when a group of pastors and church representatives from across the northwest territory approved creation of Trinity Hospital Association.

Focused on our future

As we begin the next chapter of Trinity's story, our intentions are to honor the tradition of rural community-based healthcare while discovering new and innovative ways to achieve better health.

We seek to "Make More Possible" through high-quality clinical care, a strong relationship with the community, and sound fiscal policy. You can see the embodiment of this mission in the new healthcare campus and medical district. Every element of the project was intentionally designed to support the current needs of our region and adapt to whatever the future may hold.

  • Our history

    In 1922, Lutheran pastors and parishioners from across the northwest territory decided to, “establish a general hospital for the care of the sick and the training of nurses.” The newly formed Trinity Hospital Association evolved into Minot-based Trinity Hospital where patients from across the rural region could come for modern medical care.

  • 21st century design

    Twenty-first century hospitals are more patient-centered and holistic in their design. Gone are the days of sharing rooms with other patients and having to visit multiple locations to get all the services you need. The new facility puts the patient first with features designed to reduce stress, decrease infection risks, and provide more efficient workflow for employees. It also allows for the physical expansion of service locations like surgical suites, infusion centers, and inpatient beds.

  • Increased access to services

    In the past, patients in Ward and surrounding counties faced many barriers to care. Location, lack of providers, and long waiting lists for services made it difficult to receive the safe, quality care they deserve. Our new healthcare campus and accompanying strategic plan will maximize physical space as well as medical education and innovative programs like telehealth to remove as many barriers as possible.

  • Exceptional clinical care

    Trinity Health earned its place as a regional healthcare system by adopting, meeting, and exceeding national standards for superior, evidence-based quality care, safety, and experience. We strive to be a leader in national quality, safety, and experience initiatives and promote a culture of safety and service that consistently meets the expectations and fulfills the needs of our patients, their families, and our community in all services we offer.

  • Help us make more possible

    At Trinity Health, we are on the cusp of such a moment with our new healthcare campus and medical district. Each of us can make it our own; and together, we can make more possible. Give today.

Making more possible

Trinity Health is undergoing a transformation as we continue to make more possible. But this isn't the first time we've dreamed of creating a new regional hospital “dedicated to bringing modern-day healthcare services to a mostly rural region.” Our founders put forth this same vision in 1922 when they asked the community to support a 30-bed hospital in Minot.

Now, 100 years later, we have transformed Trinity Health into a regional care system and together, we are reinventing health by making more possible for our patients and the communities we serve. As we prepare to open this new healthcare campus and medical district in 2023, we are offering even more clinical advancements and the latest technology that will solidify our place as a regional referral and healthcare system for many years to come.

Join us throughout the year as we celebrate the last 100 years and prepare to elevate the future. We are dedicated to making more possible for the future of patients and families that trust in our care.
