Mayo Clinic is named a Top Hospital for Hispanics by Hispanic Network Magazine in its 2013 “Best of the Best” issue. Mayo Clinic’s designation as a Top Hospital for Hispanics reflects its recently enhanced efforts to better connect with Spanish-speakers and deepen the historic and multifaceted bond between Mayo Clinic and Hispanic communities globally. This outreach is occurring through community collaborations around patient care, research and education.
“Diversity at Mayo Clinic is as much our future as it is our past,” says Sharonne Hayes, M.D., director of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and a cardiologist at Mayo Clinic. “Encouraging and including contributions from diverse individuals has been a core value since the founding of Mayo Clinic 150 years ago, and there’s an even greater acknowledgement today that diversity is critical to the future of Mayo Clinic and health care.”
Some of Mayo Clinic’s recently launched outreach initiatives include Historias Mayo, a video storytelling campaign (see above), sharing inspiring stories from Hispanic patients and physicians. Mayo Clinic is growing its influence in Hispanic social media via Spanish-language Twitter and Facebook accounts. Mayo Clinic also recently redesigned its Spanish website.
