Mayo Clinic mobile exhibit kicks off Monday
Mayo Clinic kicks off a free, mobile 150th-anniversary tour Monday in Kingman, Ariz., at Kingman Regional Medical Center, a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network.
The exhibit is scheduled to visit more than 40 communities in Minnesota, Missouri, Colorado, California, North Dakota, Washington, Illinois, Nebraska, Maryland, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky and Michigan, along with Washington, D.C., Winnipeg and Toronto, Canada.
"A visit to the exhibit will allow visitors to see the human body as never seen before and discover how we use innovation, research and technology to meet the unique needs of individual patients," says a description provided by Mayo. "Through examples of new research to prevent and treat disease, Mayo Clinic's impact around the world, and stories of patients whose lives have been transformed, the exhibit provides an immersion journey into Mayo Clinic's values and compelling vision for the future of health care."
The exhibit is scheduled to last from April through October and to visit Rochester May 6 to 10.
Care Network members maintain their own ownership but collaborate with Mayo to get e-consults for physicians needing input on difficult cases.
Care Network members get access to the latest research-based Mayo protocols, while Mayo in turn is likely to see patients with highly complex needs referred to its destination medical centers in Rochester, Phoenix, Ariz. and Jacksonville, Fla.
