Mayo Clinic Health System is committed to working collaboratively with local partners to regularly assess and address the health needs within its local communities through integrated clinical practice, education and research.
The organization works with hundreds of community partners on collective efforts to strengthen the quality of life, health and well-being of all in the community.
It approaches this work with these principles:
Health is valued by all members in our communities.
Health is determined by many factors, including social and behavioral, environmental as well as medical, and all are important.
Mayo Clinic Health System is committed to working with others to produce measurable improvements in the health of all community residents.
Strategies to improve community health are best determined and implemented through partnerships between health care providers, community members and community-based organizations.
