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.
Does Mayo Clinic own the members of the Mayo Clinic Care Network?

This is not an acquisition or merger. PMC will remain an independent and community-based health care provider.

In the words of Mayo Clinic founder Dr. William J. Mayo, “"The best interest of the patient is the only interest to be considered, and in order that the sick may have the benefit of advancing knowledge, [a] union of forces is necessary."
