About Astera Health
Astera Health is a private, not-for-profit healthcare corporation committed to providing personalized services that improve the health of the communities we serve. An 11-member volunteer governing board presides over the hospital, which is accredited by the Joint Commission and certified by the Minnesota Department of Health as a HealthCare Home.
Wadena and the surrounding communities have supported AH in many ways since 1925, and they are the reason for our success and strength in operations.
For nearly a century, we have seen many changes, but there is one thing that has not changed – our commitment to YOU. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your families and your well-being for nearly a century. We can’t wait to see what the years ahead will bring.

Active Community Partner
Astera Health is committed to improving the health of the communities we serve.
Our vision and mission are the core of our organization and the foundation on which the four pillars below are built. We are devoted to providing you with exceptional customer service and care, to raising up knowledgeable and enthusiastic employees, to approach each endeavor while being financially responsible and to work in partnership with the communities and people we serve.
Our vision of being your trusted partner for life is more than a job. It’s a smile, a helping hand and a word of encouragement. It’s the door man who greets you when you walk into our building. It’s the registration staff that answers your questions while getting you to your appointment quickly. It’s the nurse who makes vaccination injections not so scary for your little one. It’s the doctor who, even at the end of the day, treats you as though you’re their very first patient. It’s the countless staff members behind the scenes whose work makes your experience with us the very best that it can be.
This vision is a calling that brings people and communities together to do something far greater than just helping people feel better. It allows those we serve to live healthy and productive lives, to do the things they love, and to be with those who mean the most to them.
Caring for you – our customers and patients – isn’t just our purpose, it’s our privilege.
