The Mayo Clinic

Entry of the world famous Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. My son works here in the SPARC innovation lab, which prompted our visit to the beautiful state of Minnesota.

 

The Mayo Clinic is a wonderful place. The medical facilities are state of the art but it is the quality patient care and compassion that makes this place stand out. Mayo has always been a place of innovation and is one of the few medical facilities that have taken a page out of the Japanese business play book. Businesses have learned that innovation is key to survival. Mayo applies this same forward thinking to healthcare. Very refreshing!

 

Mayo Clinic is the first and largest integrated, not-for-profit medical group practice in the world. Doctors from every medical specialty work together to care for patients with the philosophy, 'the needs of the patient come first.'

 

There are 3,000 physicians and scientists and 46,600 allied staff workers at Mayo Clinic in it's three locations, Rochester, Minnesota, Jacksonville, Florida, and Scottsdale, Arizona. The Mayo Clinic (in its three locations) treats more the 500,000 patients a year.
