Dartmouth-Hitchcock Joins Mayo Clinic Care Network
In expanding the MCCN membership, Hayes stressed that the Mayo Clinic is looking for "like-minded facilities that share its culture and patient focus." Hayes said Mayo initially expected to develop MCCNs only around its Arizona, Florida, and Minnesota campuses, but Dartmouth-Hitchcock is "such a great cultural fit for us."
The initial MCCN contract is a one-year, renewable agreement. Membership is paid on a subscription basis that considers a number of factors such as the amount of physician engagement and the size of the organization.
In addition to Dartmouth Hitchcock the other MCCN affiliates are: Altru Health System (North Dakota and Minnesota), Arizona State University Health Services (Arizona), Kingman Regional Medical Center (Arizona), Heartland Health (Missouri), Sparrow Health System (Michigan), and CentraCare Coburn Cancer Center (Minnesota).
