Mission & History

About Unity Medical Center

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 120 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 a 14-bed critical access hospital and two primary care clinics. Unity is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation and employs more than 180 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.
