Mayo Clinic Health System is proud of our commitment to the communities we serve. We publish an annual Community Report highlighting our accomplishments, community connection, philanthropic impact and more.
Healthy communities mean healthy patients, employees, families and friends. At Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont, we have over 600 employees, providers, volunteers and physicians whose dedication, expertise and community involvement ensure that residents in the communities we serve have access to expert whole-person care.
Our major areas of influence and impact in the Fairmont community include:
Community partnerships and education
We collaborate with area academic institutions to provide students with clinical learning.
Nurses, radiology and surgical technicians participate in programs from Presentation College, Minnesota West Community and Technical College, Riverland Community College and Iowa Lakes Community College.
Opportunities are provided for Mayo Clinic School of Medicine residents and Mayo Clinic nurse anesthetists.
Preceptorships are provided for physician assistants and nurse practitioners.
Over the past year, employees have volunteered more than 2,600 hours with nonprofit organizations in our region including the Junior Achievement of The Upper Midwest, American Red Cross, American Cancer Society/Martin County Relay for Life, Kids Against Hunger and Heaven's Table Food Shelf.
