Mayo Clinic is a medical practice based in Rochester, Minnesota, USA, integrated with hospital facilities and a medical school. The first and largest facilities of Mayo Clinic are located in Rochester, but it also runs additional hospitals and physician practices in Jacksonville, Florida, and Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona. In addition, Mayo Clinic partners with a number of smaller clinics and hospitals in Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin, an organization known as the "Mayo Health System". Mayo Clinic was ranked the second best hospital in the U.S. by U.S. News & World Report in 2007[1] and 2006, and is consistently ranked by other sources as one of the best hospitals in the United States.

For historical reasons, the institution is referred to as "Mayo Clinic", rather than "The Mayo Clinic" or "Mayo's Clinic." The term "clinic" in Mayo Clinic's name normally implies a single small outpatient facility. Mayo Clinic did begin as such, but it is now a comprehensive health care system in its home region of southern Minnesota and neighboring states (the Mayo Health System) and provides a full range of inpatient and outpatient care through its hospitals and clinics. It is also a medical research organization of nationwide scope and global reputation, including both schools of graduate education and the medical school, a part of the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. Historically, Mayo Clinic was the first educational institution to train physician residents, pioneering the current model of post graduate medical education.

In terms of revenue, Mayo Clinic is the state's second-largest non-profit organization, after health insurer Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association of Minnesota. In 2004, the organization took in US$5.6 billion. In terms of nonprofit funding, Mayo Clinic is the largest in Minnesota, with a 2006 income from donations of 266 million dollars.[citation needed] The education and research activities of the Clinic are funded in part by the net revenues of the clinical practice.

Statistics for 2006: 521,000 unique patients, 2.2 million outpatient visits, 135,000 hospital admissions, 619,000 hospital days of patient care, 3,313 staff physicians, medical scientists, and clinical researchers, 2,221 residents, fellows and post-doctoral students, 46,656 nurses and other allied health staff, 5,234 million dollars in revenue from patient care, 186 million dollars in research funding, and 4,076 million dollars in assets.


Mayo Clinic is unusual in the way the medical physicians are paid. In most health care systems, medical doctors are paid based on the number of patients that they see or procedures performed. At Mayo Clinic, medical doctors are paid a fixed salary that is unaffected by patient volume. Salaries are determined instead by the marketplace salaries for physicians in comparable large group practices. This allows the doctors to spend time with their patients and not worry so much about time constraints, and discourages financial incentives for unnecessary tests, consultations and procedures. The word physician should not be confused with physicist, which means a scientist in the area of physics. ...

The Mayo Clinic founders and partners included the Drs. Mayo, Dr. Stinchfield, Dr. Graham, Dr. Henry Plummer, Dr. Millet, Dr. Judd, and Dr. Balfour. These early partners shared in the profits of the private group practice, while other staff hired later were salaried. In 1919, this group created the Mayo Properties Association, and their private practice become a not-for-profit entity. The Mayo brothers, who had retained ownership of all the Clinic properties and furnishings, gave everything to this newly formed association. The integrated group practice has it roots firmly planted in this early partnership.

Dr. Henry Stanley Plummer become a partner in the Clinic practice 1901. He is considered by many to be the "architect of the modern medical practice" and a primary reason for Mayo Clinic's early success. He designed many of the systems which are now universally used around the world today, such as a shared, individual dossier-style medical record and an interconnecting telephone system. He was well known for his pioneering work on the diseases of the thyroid, but his organizational skills proved to be his lasting legacy at Mayo Clinic.[3] While the Mayo brothers excelled as surgeons, Dr. Plummer is largly credited with establishing and developing the diagnostic and clinical aspects of the practice. Dr. Louis B. Wilson was hired by the Clinic in 1907 - at Dr. Henry Plummer's urging - to establish research and diagnostic laboratories. Henry Stanley Plummer (born March 3, 1874 in Hamilton, Minnesota, died 1937 in Rochester, Minnesota) was a prominent internist and endocrinologist who was instrumental in the founding and flourishing of the Mayo Clinic. ...

The Clinic's Plummer Building, was designed by the architectural firm of Ellerbe & Round, with considerable input from Clinic staff, and all under the guidance of Dr. Henry Plummer. At the time of completion in 1928, it was the tallest building in Minnesota and remained so until the Foshay Tower was built in Minneapolis. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1969, and has recently been undergoing an award winning restoration of its bell tower.

Mayo Clinic is most famous for developing an integrated patient care practice[7], a model that has been copied in other settings. A patient visiting Mayo Clinic for a comprehensive evaluation will typically see from two to ten doctors in a single visit, potentially on the same day, reducing the cost of multiple visits, and more importantly allowing doctors from different specialties to confer with each other and plan a course of action for the patient that is specifically designed for all of that patient's ailments. In many other health care practices, a patient may be required to visit multiple hospitals on multiple days over a prolonged period, and there may be only limited communication between doctors who have their own independent practices, such as specialists who focus on a single ailment.

Mayo Clinic also uses an atypical insurance and patient billing system, relying instead on a comprehensive patient financial counseling system. Patients are appraised of anticipated costs for their evaluation along with possible financial support that could come from their insurance companies; this removes some of the burden from the patient, who would normally need to sort this out for themselves, and also results in bill collection rates by Mayo that are higher than industry averages. For many specific services, fees are higher at Mayo Clinic than in a standard practice. However, overall costs are well controlled by the practice model that minimizes unnecessary or redundant tests and consultations; in one study of Medicare patients in the last 6 months of their lives, Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic controlled costs much better than other top academic medical centers such as UCLA and Massachusetts General Hospital.[8] Demand for services results in long waiting lists for some evaluations, such as a "general physical exam" for a patient whose general health is good (patients with specific disorders where Mayo Clinic physicians may be able to offer unique expertise are scheduled with a higher priority than general exams). Mayo Clinic has been credited by many patients for finding diseases missed by other doctors, often saving lives from detecting rare diseases or elusive life-threatening conditions.
