Fairview Ridges Hospital community health
Community Health at Fairview Ridges Hospital collaborates with faith-based institutions, local community organizations and agencies serving Dakota and Scott counties. We provide staff and resources to strengthen the community - promoting health and well-being, preventing disease and improving overall quality of life.
We also provide leadership, technical assistance and actively participate in internal and external committees and professional organizations.

Youth Grief Services
Helping families struggling with the death of a loved one is an integral part of Fairview’s commitment to improve the health of the communities we serve by addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of individuals and their families. Since 1999, Youth Grief Services has been a safe place for children and adults to learn to live with grief together. Youth Grief Services’ mission is to ensure that the needs of grieving youth are recognized, understood and met, both within their family and within their community.
Youth Grief Services offer a range of support and education services for grieving children and for the adults who care for them. The program provides telephone support and evaluation, youth and adult grief support series as well as Camp Erin, a three-day grief camp for kids. As a community service of Fairview Health Services, all our services are offered free of charge. Since its inception, more than 1,200 families have been served by Youth Grief Services.
