Journeying from St. Joseph,Minnesota, a few Sisters of the Order of St. Benedict traveled to the foothills east of Ogden, Utah. The sisters' primary purpose, to give glory to God through service to humankind, was realized through the first St. Benedict's Hospital at 3000 Polk, which opened on September 18, 1946.

Bringing with them the Benedictine holistic philosophy of healing, the sisters quietly embraced the community with their gentle, caring and tender approach to healing. Their philosophy, "caring for the sick as if they were Christ in person," is taken from the age-old Rule of St. Benedict by which the Sisters live.

The sisters' courage to lead and to grow in serving the community's healthcare needs brought many significant changes to the hospital through the years. Outgrowing the hospital on Polk Street, a new hospital in Washington Terrace was dedicated in 1977.
