History[edit]

Fairview Health Services[edit]

Fairview Health Services is a nonprofit, integrated health system based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It provides health care across the full spectrum of health care services. Fairview currently[when?] operates ten hospitals, including M Health Fairview University of Minnesota Medical Center,[2] forty eight primary care clinics and numerous specialty clinics in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area and greater Minnesota. Fairview has 32,000 employees and 2,400 affiliated providers.

In June 2010, Thomson Reuters identified Fairview Health Services as one of the top ten health care systems in the United States.[3] The University of Minnesota Medical Center in Minneapolis was also recently recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a top hospital in the United States for treatment in six different specialties.[4] In January 2011, HealthGrades listed Fairview Ridges in Burnsville and Fairview Southdale in Edina as "Distinguished Hospitals for Clinical Excellence," with each ranking in the top 5% of hospitals in the area.[5] In October 2016, James Hereford, former COO of Stanford Health Care, became CEO of Fairview.[6]

In May 2017, Fairview announced they were merging with HealthEast Care System which serves primarily St. Paul and the eastern suburbs of the Twin Cities. The combined Fairview/HealthEast has approximately 33,200 employees.[7]
