We’ve changed our technology to improve your care  

With our new electronic health record, your health care team is using a new computer system to view your medical record, place orders for your care, and more. This technology gives your health care team: 1) a full view of your health history for care provided at Fairview clinics and hospitals; 2) faster access to lab and other test results; 3) new safeguards on how we give medications and many other patient safety features; 4) health education tools right at our fingertips to help you learn more about your particular health issues. Thank you for your patience as we become familiar with using the new system. If you have questions, please talk with any of your health care team members.

Fairview and Dr. Bridget Sundell Jointly Announce Plans for a New Surgery Center in Virginia, MN  

Fairview in Hibbing and Dr. Bridget Sundell of Virginia are pleased to announce a joint venture agreement to build an outpatient surgery center in Virginia, MN. The new facility, named Northwoods Surgery Center, will focus on providing same-day surgical care in multiple specialties, including ophthalmology, orthopaedics, ear/nose/throat, and general surgery. Outpatient surgery centers, also known as ambulatory surgery centers, provide a modern alternative to hospital-based, low-risk outpatient procedures that have proven to have lower costs as well as a strong track record of quality care and positive patient outcomes. Northwoods Surgery Center will be located on Bailey's Lake, adjacent to the new Sundell Eye Clinic, in Virginia, MN. Groundbreaking for the new facility will occur this fall. Project completion is expected in 2014.
