University of Minnesota, University of Minnesota Physicians and Fairview Health Services Unite Under Shared Care Delivery System
Today, the University of Minnesota, University of Minnesota Physicians and Fairview Health Services announced approval of an agreement to create a nationally-renowned academic health system.
The agreement redefines the current University of Minnesota Health (M Health) partnership to bring together the University of Minnesota Medical Center and Fairview’s hospitals, primary care clinics, and other services into a shared care delivery system led by a single leadership structure that includes academic physicians. This system will be united under a single brand, M Health Fairview, which will launch in 2019.
“This reimagined partnership advances our shared mission to heal, discover new treatments and cures, and educate the next generation of healthcare professionals,” said Jakub Tolar, MD, PhD, Dean of the University of Minnesota Medical School and Vice President for Clinical Affairs.
“By leveraging academic medicine throughout the care delivery system and embracing new models of care that are focused on our patients, we will begin a new chapter in defining how care delivery should work,” said James Hereford, Fairview president and CEO. “We will remain rooted in our communities while offering Minnesotans more rapid access to medical discoveries, treatments, and cures.”
