MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Methodist Healthcare and Mayo Clinic announced today that Methodist has joined the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a national network of health care providers committed to better serving patients and their families through collaboration.
Methodist Healthcare is the first health care organization in Tennessee and the mid-South to join the network. The formal agreement gives Methodist Healthcare access to the latest Mayo Clinic knowledge and promotes physician collaboration that complements local expertise. Through shared resources, more patients can get answers to complex medical questions while staying close to home.
“The relationship with Mayo Clinic places physician-to-physician collaboration at the pinnacle of providing high-quality, patient- and family-centered care for all of Methodist’s patients,” says Michael Ugwueke, president and chief operating officer, Methodist Healthcare. “More than a relationship between two well-known organizations, this is truly collaboration for sharing medical knowledge and Mayo Clinic expertise, while providing tools and resources for our physicians to further enhance patient care.”
