Mayo tries different approach to healthcare consolidation
New models for collaboration are emerging. Rochester-based Mayo Clinic is establishing what it calls the Mayo Clinic Care Network, whereby independent medical facilities in Minnesota and elsewhere are able to tap the prestigious health system for second opinions and advice on complicated cases—all for a fee, of course. The arrangement is designed to help smaller hospitals with limited resources keep patients while at the same time expand Mayo's reach into the healthcare marketplace.
