In addition to our commitment to the health of our patients and their loved ones, we also embrace our organization's role as an advocate for the communities we serve. Following are just a few programs and causes we are proud to support.
The family-friendly Birdtown race includes a half marathon, 8K, 4K and kids fun, with a route through scenic downtown Robbinsdale, Minnesota. We are proud to support this new event in North Memorial's hometown!
North Memorial was a founding sponsor for Live on the Drive, a free summer concert series staged just a short walk from North Memorial Medical Center. The concerts are held June through August at Victory Memorial Drive at 34th Avenue North in Minneapolis, one of the most beautiful concert settings in the city.
North Memorial has partnered with Project for Pride in Living (PPL) to provide their classroom participants who are interested in healthcare with the opportunity to complete their job shadowing experience. Individuals have observed roles such as clerical, dietary aide and nursing assistant positions. Once participants complete their training they work with a retention specialist for 12-18 months afterwards to not only position themselves in the workforce but to continue their career development.
North Memorial participates in the Twin Cities RISE! Core Program, by providing input for program curriculum and placing participants into office support and operations positions.
Twin Cities RISE! (TCR!) is an innovative anti-poverty organization that offers a comprehensive work skills training program for low-income adults in the Twin Cities area. The combination of work skills classes, Personal Empowerment, one-on-one coaching, and internship opportunities result in placement in full time, living wage jobs.
North Memorial partners with Roosevelt High School, post-secondary institutions, state health related offices, and a number of local healthcare organizations in this initiative, which prepares students with hands-on experience and practical knowledge to explore different career opportunities within the health industry. Since 1987, the program has assisted and supported Minneapolis students in successfully preparing for post-secondary study or entry-level positions in Healthcare, right after graduation.
