Fairview Health Services and Vibrant Health Family Clinics together announced that Vibrant Health — a River Falls-based primary care group with three clinics in River Falls, Ellsworth, and Spring Valley, Wisc. — has joined the growing health system as of August 1, 2019.
“This is an exciting step forward for our system as we extend the reach of our high-quality care to the people of Western Wisconsin,” said Eric Nelson, President, Primary Care Service Line for Fairview. “Our organizations share the same core values and commitment to exceptional care that puts the customer first in everything we do.”
“For Vibrant, becoming part of a growing health system offers many opportunities,” said Keri Lijewski, MD, President of Vibrant Health. “This new relationship will provide access to advanced specialty care and the potential to develop new clinical programs to better serve our communities in the future.”
This development will expand Fairview’s existing presence in River Falls through HealthEast cardiology services; HealthEast joined the Fairview system in 2017. Fairview also currently provides durable medical equipment at the HealthEast clinic in River Falls.
“We’re excited about the opportunities that come with being part of a comprehensive health system that has a strong track record of working with independent providers,” said Dr. Lijewski. “In the meantime, Vibrant Health patients can continue to rely on the same great care they receive today.”
