Mayo Clinic Health System
Mayo Clinic Health System is a family of clinics, hospitals and other health care facilities serving more than 70 communities in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Georgia.
Founded in 1992, Mayo Clinic Health System links the expertise of Mayo Clinic with health care providers in local communities to offer patients a full spectrum of health care options, with more than 100 medical services and specialties available throughout the system. Patients receive quality health care at Mayo Clinic Health System sites and, when needed, can receive specialty care at Mayo Clinic's campuses in Rochester, Minnesota, or Jacksonville, Florida.
By working together, sharing resources and knowledge, and implementing new programs, service and technology, Mayo Clinic Health System meets the highest standards for medical care and health improvement. Affiliations with regional medical clinics in Mayo Clinic Health System offer students and trainees various additional clinical training and patient care opportunities, particularly in rural medicine, to coincide with their interests.
Most Mayo Clinic Health System sites are located in southern Minnesota, northeastern Iowa and western Wisconsin. In 2012, the system grew to include Mayo Clinic Health System in Waycross, Georgia. Each site works to best meet the unique needs of the community it serves. Facilities range from large regional medical centers with hospitals to rural primary care clinics.
Access to Mayo Clinic Health System allows students and trainees to draw from the knowledge and expertise of Mayo Clinic while collaborating with and learning from health care providers in diverse, individualized settings.
