Mayo Clinic has entered into a formal collaborative with physicians at Shriners Hospitals for Children – Twin Cities, which will become the first pediatric hospital to join the Mayo Clinic Care Network .
"The relationship between Shriners and the Mayo Clinic Children's Center has been a long-standing and rewarding one, and by formalizing our collaboration, we'll be able to work even more closely together to enhance the care we provide children," David Hayes, MD, medical director, Mayo Clinic Care Network, said in prepared remarks.
Shriners provides specialized pediatric orthopedic care in a seven-state region and is part of a network of children's hospitals located across the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
