A visit to OMC's Coffee Shop Café 49!
A name that pays tribute
The healthcare provider now known as Olmsted Medical Center (OMC) began on July 15, 1949, as the solo family-medicine practice of Harold (Hal) Wente, MD. From Dr. Wente’s modest space in downtown Rochester’s Lawler building, which formerly was located at the corner of Broadway and West Center Street, OMC grew over several decades into the regional system it is today. Our many caregivers serve southeast Minnesota’s residents through a network of outpatient clinics, a large hospital campus, and many other clinical facilities.
Throughout OMC’s years of growth, our dedication to personal, exceptional patient care has been matched only by our respect for our organization’s history. Increasingly, the chronicles of how OMC earned its reputation as southeast Minnesota’s hometown healthcare provider are reflected in how we decorate our facilities. It was in this spirit that we chose Café 49 as the name for this area, which combines the products and service of a modern coffeehouse with the friendly, welcoming ambiance that we’ve been known for since Dr. Wente opened his very first office.
