Who We Are

Associated Healthcare Credit Union is the best healthcare credit union in Minnesota since 1953, serving members in the healthcare industry for over 67 years.

A credit union offers economical financial services to a group of people who share a common bond. What is AHCU's common bond? Healthcare professionals. And our roots go deep! We were founded by a group of volunteer hospital employees at Miller Hospital, who wanted to provide financial services to their coworkers in a safe and equitable manner. In February of 1953, we were charted as Miller Employees Credit Union. Our membership expanded in 1974 to include Children’s Hospital, once again prompting a name change to United and Children’s Hospitals Employees Credit Union. Finally in 1988, we changed our name to Associated Healthcare Credit Union, a name that could embrace future growth.

In November of 2011, Blue Stone Federal Credit Union, serving the employees of Blue Cross Blue Shield, joined Associated Healthcare Credit Union. A few years later in January of 2013, HealthEast Employees Credit Union, serving the employees and family of HealthEast, also joined our family.
