The walls of a hospital hold more than the weight of their structure. The building contains memories and stories from patients, families and staff. The history of hospitals in Minneapolis dates back to 1871 with the first hospital, Cottage Hospital, which became St. Barnabas Hospital, a predecessor of Hennepin County Medical Center. Through the years, and many transitions, the history of the hospitals often reflects the changing city landscape.
