"The best interest of the patient is the only interest to be considered, and in order that the sick may have the benefit of advancing knowledge, union of forces is necessary." — Dr. William J. Mayo, 1910.
Mayo Clinic has a long history of working together with other providers across the globe to solve complex medical challenges. That is why the Mayo Clinic Care Network was formed — to extend knowledge, expertise and resources to carefully vetted, independent, high-quality health care organizations.
The network includes thousands of physicians, collaborating, improving outcomes and advancing health care. The reason remains the same today as it did for Dr. Will in 1910 — to provide patients with the care they need, close to home at no additional cost.
