Every day more than 3,600 Mayo physicians and scientists and more than 50,000 allied health staff work together as a team to put the needs of our patients first.
Individually and collectively we are committed to changing lives, advancing medicine, fostering hope and transforming health care delivery.
This is what we call "The Mayo Effect."
Our four strategic requirements ensure that we live our primary values, while enhancing and expanding our core business:
Provide solutions and hope for patients
That's what patients and their loved ones expect from Mayo. And we strive to provide it — through our unique care environment, our world-class research and our groundbreaking medical education. We come to work at this leading academic medical center full of hope and ready to offer simple human kindnesses that positively affect those whose lives we are honored to touch.
Be most trusted and affordable
Mayo Clinic is trusted worldwide, even among those who have never sought our services. We take this responsibility seriously. We are committed to offering our patients the best outcomes, safety and service available — while still being affordable. We remain competitive to third-party payers. And regardless of a patient's means, the end will be the same — integrated, patient-centered care.
Generate, evaluate, integrate and manage knowledge and information
Our goal is to bring all medical knowledge to the delivery of care for each individual — seamlessly. Yes, it's ambitious, but essential. To continue to achieve breakthroughs, we strive to create even tighter links between research and the practice of medicine. By doing so we can reduce costs, advance medicine and enhance both individual and population health.
Transform Mayo Clinic's health care delivery process
As the world's leading academic medical center, the work of improving what we do never ceases. Solving complex medical problems, performing novel surgeries, caring for everyday aches and pains are all within our scope. And we improve this work every single day.
We also strive to incorporate new care models and services, make connections across sites and disciplines, expand the range of our health care products and services, and extend our global reach.
Mayo Clinic — and the care that our patients receive — is enhanced every day by "The Mayo Effect." It helps us achieve our strategies and realize our mission. And it comes about because of our relentless collaboration, our unrivaled expertise, and our compassionate commitment to the health and happiness of every single patient.
