Extended Clinical Research Unit (CRU)
The Extended CRU has the ability to dispatch specially trained staff to the bedside of acutely ill patients throughout Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minn.
Specially trained research nurses and support staff conduct protocols, secure specimens, administer medications and gather critical data at the bedside of hospitalized patients, ensuring that hospital nursing staff can continue to concentrate on their first priority: providing prompt, safe and effective patient care.
The unit provides 24/7 coverage at both Mayo Clinic hospitals in Rochester — Saint Marys Hospital and Rochester Methodist Hospital.
