In 1910 a private home owned by Gustav Willius in Saint Paul, Minnesota, was converted into a 25-bed hospital and became the first St. John's Hospital.[1] The first two floors were for patients and the third floor provided living quarters for the nurses.

St. John's German Hospital was dedicated in September 1911, and on October 1, 1911 the first patient with typhoid fever arrived at St. John's Hospital. In 1918 St. John's Hospital was turned over to the city of St. Paul during the flu epidemic to care for charity patients.

In 1985, St. John's Northeast Hospital was built at its current Maplewood, Minnesota location. The following year St. John's Hospital joined other faith-based hospitals in the Twin Cities' East Metro to form HealthEast Care System. The former location of St. John's Hospital is now home to Metropolitan State University.

St. John's is currently a member of the M Health Fairview family of care.[2]
