As the largest emergency hospital in Minneapolis, the Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) is open to all members of the community and recognizes the spiritual needs of different faiths. The new Spiritual Center can be found in HCMC’s Red building and is available 24 hours to patients, families and staff.  HCMC’s Diversity Consultant Melissa Johnson discusses the motivation behind the new Center in stating, “We had a chapel before, but we knew we needed a space that was inviting to everyone that has some kind of prayer or meditation need.” HCMC also has a food program that caters to diverse preferences as well as exhibit spaces that showcase local artists and communities.
