North Memorial Health begins official partnership with Minnesota Vikings


Robbinsdale, MN – Sept. 21, 2018

North Memorial Health is proud to announce an official partnership with the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings. The multi-year collaboration brings together two organizations that have each played important parts of many Minnesotans’ lives for generations.

“We are excited to partner with a team that is such an integral part of our community and culture here in Minnesota,” said Dr. J. Kevin Croston, North Memorial Health CEO. “The Vikings’ teamwork leads to bold plays on the field. And, the North Memorial Health team is taking a boldly different approach to healthcare. This partnership is one way we are building on our strong presence in the community and highlighting our commitment to patient-focused care delivery.”

At U.S. Bank Stadium, North Memorial Health will sponsor the five Mamava Lactation Pods located throughout the facility. The pods provide mothers a clean, private environment to breastfeed their children or pump while attending events at U.S. Bank Stadium year-round.

North Memorial Health will also have a large Viking ship on the stadium plaza on gamedays for fans looking for a fun photo opportunity. As the base of North Memorial Health’s gameday activities, the ship will have tons of photo props and fun giveaways. On non-gamedays, the ship will travel to other locations and events throughout the area.

“We look forward to getting our team out on the stadium plaza and in the community to engage with fans,” said Dr. Croston. “This partnership is something our team members will be proud to be a part of for many years to come.”
