It is part of the university’s system-wide plan, called MPACT 2025, which outlines its commitment to innovate and introduce new and leading-edge models, discoveries and technologies based on health science research and care.

This is addressed by recruiting diverse talent, maintaining a welcoming climate on campus, and fostering partnerships. The fifth and final commitment is Fiscal Stewardship, which aims to break down financial barriers for students and rethink the security of risk management.

MPact Health Care Innovation falls under the third commitment and has five key points…

  1. To make the University of Minnesota a world-class academic healthcare system. The university aims to provide Minnesotans with access to a world-class academic healthcare system through intensive research, teaching, and care. When it comes to research, the university is a powerhouse, ranking in the top 10 US public universities in terms of research spending. In addition, it is ranked among the top 20 universities for obtaining US utility models.
  2. University governance and control. With numerous flagship facilities, the university aims to control, own and manage these facilities to provide this world-class academic healthcare system. These facilities are: the University of Minnesota Medical Center – East Bank and West Bank, Masonic Children’s Hospital, and the Clinics and Surgery Center.
  3. Opportunities for strategic partnerships. To maximize mission-based impact, the university seeks opportunities through partnerships and relationships with health systems. They are indispensable as a state scholarship university and support the teaching and research tasks. There are currently over 3000 established clinical education partnerships. Access to clinical trials is possible because the university partners with providers across the state that have cutting-edge research and clinical trials. Through the Mobile Health Initiative, students work to connect health professionals with community partners. This involves a lot of volunteer work within the community itself and focuses on strengthening the skills and knowledge of the patient care workforce.
  4. future: New state of the art hospital. The hospital facilities in the East and West Banks were built in the early 20th century. A redesigned state-of-the-art hospital complex on East Bank is part of the vision to advance clinical and academic medicine for the next 50-100 years. Limited space and limited funds are at the forefront of the minds of those pushing for this development. Land has been purchased in recent years but will take another 5 or more years of construction once it gets underway.
  5. Now: Investment in existing facilities. To provide the best care, the university must keep its facilities running, and to be a top-notch university, it must provide top-notch care. This can only happen through a bridge from the present to the future.
