Mayo Clinic's St. Marys and Methodist Hospitals are transitioning to a single licensed hospital, operating under the name Mayo Clinic Hospital – Rochester, which marks the next step in hospital integration that began in 1986. John Noseworthy, M.D., president and CEO, Mayo Clinic, says, "From their respective beginnings, Saint Marys Hospital, the Sisters of Saint Francis, Methodist Hospital and Mayo Clinic have enjoyed a partnership founded on trust, mutual respect and commitment to meeting the needs of each patient. Mayo Clinic cherishes and will remain steadfast to that commitment."
The change, which will be effective Jan. 1, 2014, is being made to better reflect Mayo’s integrated hospital practice, ensure accurate reporting of data, and reinforce our ability to prove the value of Mayo Clinic care, while still honoring the commitment to the organization’s founders’ values.
