The M Health Fairview clinic opening this November will serve the health care needs of millions of visitors and employees who come to Mall of America. M Health Fairview is the new brand that will be formally introduced later this year, combining the expertise of Fairview, the University of Minnesota, and University of Minnesota Physicians.
“We’re working to make the best health care as convenient and accessible as possible for people,” says Laura Reed, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Nursing Executive at Fairview. “This new clinic brings high quality health care much closer to people, whether they are shopping, traveling, or working at or near the Mall of America.”
The clinic on Level 3 East will be positioned to provide services to employees and tenants of the Mall as well as visitors staying at the many surrounding hotels. In addition to treating minor illnesses and injuries, the clinic will provide travel health consultations for those planning international trips; physicals for school, sports, and summer camps; vaccinations and employer drug screenings, among other common services. Travelers staying in nearby hotels, on flight layovers, or visiting Mall of America will be able to receive care with travel-related sleep problems, gastrointestinal distress, and other medical issues.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to bring Minnesota’s health care expertise to one of the state’s most visited destinations,” says Badrinath Konety, MD, Chief Executive Officer for University of Minnesota Physicians and Chief Clinical Officer for M Health Fairview.
The 2,300-square-foot space will have five exam rooms, a laboratory space for tests, a radiology room, and pharmacy dispensing to support available services. Hours will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays.
“Mall of America continually looks at what conveniences and services can be added to our roster of offerings within the property. The addition of the M Health Fairview clinic will provide yet another convenience that truly creates a one-stop hub for the needs of our millions of visitors, employees and tenants,” said Jill Renslow, SVP of Business Development and Marketing for the mall. “We are thrilled to welcome M Health Fairview to our eclectic mix of retailers, dining, and attractions at Mall of America.”
Whatever the health care need, people visiting the M Health Fairview Walk-In Clinic at Mall of America will benefit from connections to the comprehensive care and services offered through M Health and Fairview as we come together to discover better ways to detect, diagnose, and deliver new treatments and world-class health care to our communities.
