St. Olaf College’s partnership with Northfield Hospital & Clinics combines traditional on-campus care with a cutting-edge virtual diagnostic service, Zipnosis, that students can access anytime, anywhere. The partnership includes having an on-campus certified nurse practitioner who can diagnose, treat, and write prescriptions for common illnesses and injuries. Referrals can be made for more complex conditions.
Students who need additional medical attention for more complex conditions can access local clinics. Northfield Hospital & Clinics has an excellent staff of providers, and partners with a broad range of premier providers — including Mayo Clinic, Abbott Northwestern Hospital, University of Minnesota Medical Center, and Hennepin County Medical Center.
