Introducing the Fairview Community Health and Wellness Hub
How we got here
Why a Community Health and Wellness Hub?
Our health system is committed to playing a key role in reducing health inequalities and the impact of the social risk factors that produce poor health in our most diverse neighborhoods.
Around 80 percent of your overall health is influenced by factors outside of hospital or clinical care – including education, job status, family and social support, and more. These factors are considered “social determinants of health.”
Our research found that over half of community members say they face barriers to healthcare when they are sick or have a medical need. We also found that people face barriers to simply maintaining their overall health. These numbers are even higher for older people and Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) groups. The Fairview Community Health and Wellness Hub will work with partners to reduce and eliminate these barriers and risk factors, addressing them holistically with a focus on each community’s evolving needs.
Together with many valued partners, we are creating a campus that addresses the negative impacts of the social determinants of health and helps community members access the things they need to live a healthy life.
Our priorities include:
- Bringing clinical services into neighborhoods to expand access
- Advancing our anchor mission’s local initiatives – hiring, purchasing, investing, and leading and serving
- Addressing social risk factors through food access, housing programs, and community education and outreach

M Health Fairview Center for Community Health Equity
“Health equity will require all of us — health care systems, community leaders, policy makers and community members — to rethink how we can create health and remove barriers that impede wellness, especially among communities of color.”
