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.
Fairview employees, friends and relatives team up to participate in the American Heart Association's Heart Walk and the March of Dimes' March for Babies. Last year, more than 2,000 walkers participated with us in these important community events, raising a combined total of more than $220,000 in support.
Stepping up to make a difference
Our support of the Heart Walk and the March for Babies has made a difference for Fairview patients. To date, the American Heart Association and the March of Dimes have given more than $4 million dollars in grants to our partner, the University of Minnesota, for advancing clinical care research and education.
This research translates into the heart care provided each day at Fairview, from heart transplantation to prevention and treatment of heart disease.
This research also informs our practice for healthy babies 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.
