Myongji Hospital in South Korea joins Mayo Clinic Care Network
Myongji Hospital is the first hospital in South Korea to join the network, a select group of independent health care systems that have special access to Mayo Clinic’s knowledge and expertise to better serve their patients and communities.
Though this formal relationship with Mayo Clinic, Myongji Hospital providers can access clinical resources that promote collaboration and enhance locally provided care, such as:
Review Mayo Clinic-vetted information on care guidelines, treatment recommendations and medical reference information at the point of care.
Consult electronically with Mayo Clinic specialists on patient care questions.
Interact with a multidisciplinary panel of Mayo Clinic specialists and members of the network through live video conferences to review and discuss the management of complex cases.
- Health care consulting
Learn from Mayo Clinic’s experience and gain access to its subject matter experts to meet an organization’s clinical, operational and business objectives.
Myongji Hospital’s staff also will have access to professional development opportunities, including grand rounds, symposia and continuing medical education programs. In addition, staff will have access to Mayo Clinic’s library of patient education materials.
Mayo Clinic developed the first integrated, multispecialty group practice more than 150 years ago. Today, Mayo Clinic is the largest nonprofit group practice in the world, serving about 1.3 million patients annually. Mayo Clinic providers from every specialty work to advance medical knowledge through research and education, and apply that knowledge to medical care.
“We have become a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network by proving our commitment to quality care and our dedication to patient-centered medical services,” says Wang-Jun Lee, M.D., Ph.D., CEO and chairman, Myongji Hospital. “Our mission reflects a shared focus to keep the needs of the patient first. Combining the knowledge and experience of Mayo Clinic with Myongji Hospital’s expert care will enhance the high-quality medical services we provide our patients.”
Mayo Clinic conducts a comprehensive evaluation of potential Mayo Clinic Care Network members to ensure that both organizations share a philosophy, commitment and mission to improve the delivery of health care through high-quality, data-driven, evidenced-based medical care.
“We are pleased to welcome Myongji Hospital to the Mayo Clinic Care Network,” says David Hayes, M.D., medical director, Mayo Clinic Care Network. “Myongji Hospital and Mayo Clinic both understand the importance of offering integrated care, research and education, and the value of this offering to patients. We look forward to collaborating with Myongji Hospital as they bring the best of their care to their patients.”
Myongji Hospital and other members of the Mayo Clinic Care Network remain independent but share Mayo’s commitment to improve the delivery of health care. Launched in 2011, the Mayo Clinic Care Network consists of more than 40 member organizations in the U.S., China, Mexico, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates.
