Mora is a quaint community of just over 3,000 residents, tucked within the rolling farmlands and abundant lakes and rivers of east central Minnesota. An inviting community, prideful of its Swedish heritage, Mora is located 68 miles north of Minneapolis and St. Paul at the intersection of Highways 65 and 23. It is 50 miles northeast of St. Cloud and 90 miles southwest of Duluth. More information about the Mora community can be found on the Mora Chamber of Commerce website. Formally Kanabec Hospital, FirstLight Health System has been serving the community’s health care needs since 1943. Kanabec Hospital was originally scheduled to open in January 1946, but opened early for an unexpected arrival. On Christmas Eve in 1945, Mrs. Walton Regan gave birth to their son, James Michael, and they became the hospitals’ first two patients.

FirstLight Health System remains a self-sustaining, county-owned, critical access hospital and clinic system. The hospital serves Pine and Kanabec counties with primary and secondary medical services. The hospital has a state-of-the-art four-bay surgery suite, 24-hour emergency department, an EMA/Paramedic staffed ambulance service, a newly remolded birthing center and many more services to meet the needs of our communities. FirstLight performs approximately 2,500 surgeries, delivers 150 babies, manages 12,500 emergency department visits, and cares for patients with 25 licensed patient beds each year. In 2010, FirstLight (Kanabec Hospital) acquired Allina Medical Clinics in Mora, Hinckley and Pine City to serve as one integrated health system. In 2011, Kanabec Hospital formally changed its name to FirstLight Health System.

FirstLight is accredited by the Joint Commission and was recognized as a Top Performer on Key Quality Measurers in 2011. The Star Tribune has honored FirstLight as a Top 150 Work Place in 2013, 2014 and 2015. FirstLight has received the Women’s Choice Award for the region’s best hospital in 2013 and the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Association Excellence in Innovation Award. The Minnesota Hospital Association, from 2011–2014, recognized FirstLight for its Commitment to Patient Safety. Most recently in 2015, the American Diabetes Association named FirstLight an accredited diabetes education facility.
