Since opening in Scottsdale, Arizona, in 1987, Mayo Clinic has evolved into an integrated multisite system that includes the five-story Mayo Clinic Building, Collaborative Research Building and Samuel C. Johnson Research Building in Scottsdale, as well as Mayo Clinic Hospital and Mayo Clinic Specialty Building in northeast Phoenix.
The Arizona campus offers excellent education facilities, including classrooms, lecture halls, and an extensive library and computer lab.
Mayo Clinic Building
Campus activity in Scottsdale is centered around this modern, five-story facility. It contains 240 exam and procedure rooms, an outpatient surgery center equipped for general anesthesia, a full-service laboratory, a pharmacy, a patient education library, an endoscopy suite, a 188-seat auditorium for patient, staff and student education programs, and a multilevel parking garage.
Located on the Scottsdale campus, the Samuel C. Johnson Research Building and the Collaborative Research Building house scientists, trainees and students focused on molecular genetics, molecular immunology, molecular and cell biology, molecular chemistry, and surgical research.
Mayo Clinic Hospital
Located in northeast Phoenix, this highly advanced, seven-story facility has 268 licensed beds, 21 operating rooms and an emergency department. This hospital opened in 1998 and is the first hospital entirely designed and built by Mayo Clinic. It has been recognized several times by Phoenix magazine as the "Best Hospital in Phoenix."
The hospital is also home to the 3,000-square-foot Multidisciplinary Simulation Center that re-creates real-life patient care situations, allowing medical teams and trainees from multiple disciplines to practice on sophisticated manikins in a no-risk environment.
