Mayo Clinic Care Network



What is the Mayo Clinic Care Network?

The Mayo Clinic Care Network is a non-ownership, contractual relationship between Mayo Clinic and the hospitals and physicians who wish to collaborate together and deepen their relationship to improve the delivery of health care to our patients and communities.
  • Network member physicians and providers have access to Mayo Clinic resources, including tools to promote physician-to-physician consultations and a point-of-care database of best-practice information on disease management, care guidelines, treatment recommendations and reference materials.
  • Mayo Clinic Care Network helps Mayo Clinic to develop stronger relationships with like-minded organizations, so more people in more places can benefit from the specialty knowledge and expertise that are hallmarks of Mayo Clinic.
  • Additionally, Mayo Clinic has a long history of collaborating with other medical providers to provide the best possible care for patients. It’s a deeply valued part of our culture.
