Is today Mayo Clinic's 150th anniversary?

Perhaps. It was exactly 150 years ago today that the earliest announcement was published of Dr. W. W. Mayo's medical practice in Rochester, according to Mayo officials.

The noticeran in the Rochester Republican newspaper on Jan. 27, 1864. The announcement reads: "Hyde & Mayo: Physicians & Surgeons -- Having formed a copartnership for the practice of Medicine and Surgery, solicit a share of patronage. All calls answered by day or night. Office over the Union Drug Store on Third Street."

Dr. Hyde was with Dr. Mayo for the first half of 1864.

Mayo is celebrating its 150 anniversary this year with a variety of occasions marking the past medical achievements as well as looking forward to the future of health care, including the Destination Medical Center.
