Heard on the Street: Guthrie becomes 36th member of Mayo network

We are part of The Trust Project.

Guthrie has become the first health-care organization based in Pennsylvania and New York to join the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a national network of health care providers loosely affiliated with but not owned by Mayo Clinic.

Guthrie will be its 36th member. The agreement gives Guthrie access to the latest Mayo Clinic knowledge and promotes physician collaboration that complements local expertise.

"Joining the Mayo Clinic Care Network was a natural fit for Guthrie, and we feel it makes sense for both our organizations," says Dr. Joseph Scopelliti, M.D., president and CEO, of Guthrie. "We share a history with Mayo Clinic, as Guthrie was modeled after Mayo when Dr. Guthrie returned here from his residency training in Rochester, Minnesota, over 100 years ago."

Scopelli added that as health care has continued to become more complex, Guthrie saw the value of working together with a nationally known provider.

As a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, Guthrie will tap into Mayo expertise through eConsult electronic consults; AskMayoExpert, a web-based medical resource; health-care consulting; patient education materials; and other ways.


"We're very pleased to welcome Guthrie to the network," said Dr. David Hayes, M.D., medical director of the Mayo Clinic Care Network. "This relationship gives us the opportunity to build on our uniquely similar cultures. We are expanding on a collaborative approach to medicine that is innovative, yet deeply familiar to both organizations."

Guthrie, founded in 1910 and located in north central Pennsylvania and upstate New York, is a nonprofit integrated health care delivery system that includes four hospitals, more than 290 physicians and 175 midlevel providers, 32 regional provider offices in 23 communities, home health and home care services, and a research institute. — Staff reports
