Raising awareness and funds for research
Fairview has proudly partnered for years with the American Heart Association and March of Dimes. Our organizations are committed to life-saving research and education to advance care in key clinical areas—healthy hearts and healthy babies.
In spring 2014, Fairview employees, friends and relatives teamed up to participate in these important community events. Final totals for 2014 are still being calculated, but in 2013, Team Fairview exceeded its goals and raised a combined total of more than $240,000 in support of healthy hearts and healthy babies.
Stepping up to make a difference
March for Babies
Team Fairview was out in force on April 26, 2014 at the March of Dimes' March for Babies, held in St. Paul's Como Park. We had more than 800 walkers from Team Fairview.
Our partner, the University of Minnesota, has more than $1.7 million in combined active research grants from the March of Dimes.
This research is translated into practice each day as Fairview staff provides family-centered care at our Birthplaces, comprehensive prenatal care at our Maternal-Fetal Medicine Centers and quality intensive care for critically ill newborns at our Neonatal Intensive Care Units at University of Minnesota Children's Hospital, Fairview Ridges Hospital and Fairview Southdale Hospital.
Close to 800 Team Fairview walkers took part in the American Heart Association's Heart Walk held May 31, 2014 at Target Field in Minneapolis.
Our partner, the University of Minnesota, has more than $3.2 million in combined active research grants from the American Heart Association, helping enable it to research cardiovascular disease.
This research is translated into the heart care provided each day at Fairview, from prevention and treatment of heart disease to heart transplantation and the latest medical research.
