Mayo Clinic clarifies terms for hospitals' name change

We are part of The Trust Project.

Mayo Clinic has announced how it will help patients find their way once Saint Marys and Methodist hospitals become a single, licensed facility called "Mayo Clinic Hospital" on Jan. 1 of 2014.

Mayo will continue to maintain two distinct campuses — one referred to as the Methodist Campus and the other called the Saint Marys Campus.

"The new legal name will become Mayo Clinic Hospital — Rochester," said Mayo spokesman Bryan Anderson. "The Methodist Campus and Saint Marys Campus names incorporate the heritage of each facility and will be used, as appropriate, on signage and patient itineraries."

The hospitals first began integrating with Mayo in 1986.

"The single licensed hospital will better reflect Mayo's integrated hospital practice, ensure accurate reporting of data, and reinforce Mayo's ability to prove the value of its care," Anderson said. "An unwavering commitment to the founders' values will remain."
