• The mission of the Center for Innovation is to transform the experience and delivery of health and health care.

  • The center offers a unique space within Mayo Clinic to rapidly iterate new ideas into the practice.

  • "Health care can no longer continue doing business as usual." — Douglas L. Wood, M.D., medical director of the Center for Innovation

  • The center follows a usercentric approach from discovery to implementation, applying an interdisciplinary team and research methods to reveal unmet needs.

  • "Perhaps the ability … to see what the patient desires and needs comes through the sixth sense we call intuition, which in turn comes from wide experience and deep sympathy for a devotion to the patient …" — Dr. Charles H. Mayo
