Improving the health of our communities
Improving the health of the communities we serve is the cornerstone of Fairview's non-profit mission. That mission extends to serving those who cannot afford health care and to supporting programs and services to reach where traditional health care cannot. Fairview develops community benefit programs and services to improve health in Minnesota communities.
Our promise to provide exceptional care to each patient, every day includes those individuals who may never visit a Fairview facility for a traditional health care need. Through targeted outreach, education and partnerships, we improve the health of our communities by listening to their needs and responding with appropriate programs and services. Our preventive “upstream” approach focuses on protecting and promoting the health of the community as a whole – helping people stay healthy and reducing risks to their health.
Our programs, many of which have been nationally recognized, range from health education and free screenings to training health professionals. Community partnerships vary from school initiatives like the Friends Make a Difference school mentoring program to supporting children and families who have lost a loved one through our Youth Grief Services program to providing free flu shots to under- and uninsured people in the community. We’re proud of our community involvement through these service programs, scholarships and community partnerships that help us deliver on our mission.
