Mission & History

Mission Statement

Unity Medical Center provides access to quality healthcare for the region.

Our mission is simple. We want to make our community a better place through education and the enlisting of our citizens to bring services to those in need. We accomplish our mission through our core values.


Unity Medical Center and its predecessors, Grafton Deaconess Hospital, St Joseph's Hospital and Grafton Family Clinic have been a vital part of the Grafton community for more than 119 years. We were founded to serve a growing segment of our community in need of accessible services.

Today, Unity Medical Center is an incorporated, community-owned and operated health care facility. Included within Unity is an 11-bed acute care hospital and two family care clinics licensed by the North Dakota Department of Health. Unity is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation and employs more than 150 people.

We have continued to grow with the help of our donors and volunteers that make our mission possible. Unity Medical Center has the support of the Auxiliary, Unity Medical Center Foundation, and the people of Grafton and the surrounding region.  Funds raised through Unity Medical Center's donors are used to purchase needed items and equipment as well as for continuing education for our staff.

Our purpose still remains the same: bring services to those in need.
