Health happens outside the hospital.

We know that 80% of health happens outside the doctor’s office. Social factors can have a strong impact on overall health. Housing, transportation, educational attainment, food security and access to economic resources are just some of the social determinants of health affecting the health of individuals and families. Minnesota’s hospitals are dedicated to working toward solutions and providing support to improve the health and lives of Minnesotans.
