Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC)

Hennepin County Medical Center and our Community Clinics provide comprehensive and specialized health care services for the general public. The main campus is located in downtown Minneapolis. The Food and Nutrition Services Department at HCMC is kicking off a new Minnesota Engergy Challenge Team at their Earth Day Event on April 22, 2009 in the hospital cafeteria. We hope to encourage many of our 4,752 employees to take the Engergy Challenge and join our HCMC Team!
