M Health Fairview
Healthcare Founded in Academics
The Masonic Cancer Center and M Health Fairview have created a collaborative research environment focused on the causes, prevention, detection, and treatment of cancer.
A partnership between the University of Minnesota, University of Minnesota Physicians and Fairview Health Services combines the University’s deep history of clinical innovation and training with Fairview’s extensive roots in community medicine. This means you’ll always have access to the latest techniques and advances in medicine — when and where you need them.
No institution is working harder to advance the science of cancer care than the team of experts at the Masonic Cancer Center, and every day M Health Fairview patients benefit from working with the specialized team of doctors, nurses, researchers, and healthcare professionals committed to providing life-saving care.
Advances in medicine and science are the results of new ideas and approaches developed through research. New cancer treatments must prove to be safe and effective in scientific studies with a certain number of patients before they can be made widely available.
