There's a new arrival coming to the Mall of America, but it's not a retail store.

It's a walk-in health clinic from M Health Fairview, the health nonprofit created through a collaboration between Fairview Health Services, the University of Minnesota and University of Minnesota Physicians.

Opening November on Level 3 East at the Bloomington megamall, it will offer "a variety of health care needs to the millions of visitors and employees that are at Mall of America every day."

"We’re working to make the best healthcare as convenient and accessible as possible for people," says Laura Reed, COO and Chief Nursing Executive at Fairview.

"This new clinic brings high quality healthcare much closer to people whether they are shopping, traveling, or working at or near the Mall of America."

The clinic will be able to treat minor illnesses and injuries to shoppers, employees, and visitors staying at nearby hotels, as well as providing travel health consultations for those traveling internationally, physicals for school and sports, vaccinations, and employer drug screenings.

"Travelers staying in nearby hotels, on flight layovers or visiting Mall of America will be able to receive care with travel-related sleep problems, gastrointestinal distress and other medical issues," the press release sent to BMTN adds.

"This is a tremendous opportunity to bring Minnesota’s healthcare expertise to one of the state’s most visited destinations," says Badrinath Konety, CEO of, University of Minnesota Physicians and Chief Clinical Officer at M Health Fairview.

The Mall of America is Minnesota's most popular tourist attraction, bringing in an estimated 40 million people every year.
