Fairview Health System
3 year commitment
Hospitals are the places we go to get healthy, so the food we eat while there should have a positive impact on our bodies. With this in mind, more than 700 hospital partners across the nation, including Fairview Health System, teamed up with PHA to make healthier choices easier.
On October 6, 2012, Fairview Health System joined PHA’s Hospital Healthier Food Initiative, partnering with us on our mission to create dramatic and expansive improvements in hospital nutrition. From committing to display only health-promoting food options in cafeteria and menu advertising, to removing all fryers and deep-fat fried products and placing healthier food options within five feet of the checkout, the system’s changes have the potential to reach many. With Fairview Health System’s 1.5 million inpatients, nearly 17,000 employees and hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, this could have a major impact on the 2.75 million meals served annually at its facilities.
More than 700 hospital partners (10 percent of all hospitals nationwide) take part in our Hospital Healthier Food Initiative.
