We Care. And Our Service Proves It.
About Benedictine Living Community of St. Peter
The Benedictine Living Community of St. Peter includes skilled nursing services--both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care--at the Benedictine Health Center, and independent and assisted living at Benedictine Court. Our indoor walking corridors will take you to River's Edge Hospital, Live Well Fitness Center and Mayo Clinic Health System St. Peter. This unique campus setting links the Benedictine tenants and residents to the only full continuum of care in the area.
Our campus provides a caring home for many with the help of the Benedictine Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery along with management oversight from Benedictine Health System. Benedictine Health Center leases the building from the City of St. Peter.
Benedictine Living Community is committed to witness God’s love for all people, with special concern for the poor and powerless. This mission is reflected through the provision of compassionate services. We realize how important it is for tenants and residents to have their spiritual needs met and we are fortunate to have local clergy who are dedicated to serving our campus.
Our campus chapel is located near the front entry of Benedictine Health Center and is utilized by residents from Benedictine Health Center and tenants from Benedictine Court. Local churches provide worship services, including:
- Catholic Mass
- Catholic Word/Communion

The Benedictine Living Community of St. Peter is a nonprofit organization serving people of all faiths. In 2004, the city-owned St. Peter Community Health Care Center on Park Row transitioned their operations to the Benedictine Health System. In January 2007 Benedictine Health Center opened their doors in their current location on Klein Street. In 2011 Benedictine Living Community of St. Peter expanded their services by opening their senior living housing, Benedictine Court. This 46-unit apartment building offers independent and assisted living options.
Today, the Benedictine Health Center can be home to 79 residents and features four resident neighborhoods: Angel, serving memory care residents; Eagle, short-term rehabilitation; and Butterfly and Dove, serving long-term care residents. The building features 47 private rooms with private bathrooms, and 32 privacy enhanced rooms with shared accommodations. The building is designed with ‘neighborhoods’ of 20, offering living and dining for 10 residents on each household with enjoyable outdoor patios.
The Benedictine Living Community of St. Peter employee 140 staff members and on average serve more than 200 campus residents and tenants each year.
