Fairview Health Services notified the University of Minnesota on Monday that it does not plan to extend its current partnership.
The two organizations have partnered as M Health Fairview since 2018. It’s a large string of hospitals and clinics in the state — and a major source of funding for the university’s medical school.
The partnership will run through the end of 2026. It was set to automatically renew for another decade; both parties had until Dec. 31 of this year to notify the other if they did not want that renewal to go forward.
According to a statement from the University of Minnesota, the notification did not come as a surprise.
