Mayo Clinic Health System works collaboratively with local partners, including public health, to regularly assess and address the health needs of its communities.
In Faribault and southeast Minnesota, we work with hundreds of community partners on collective efforts to strengthen the quality of life, and improve the health and well-being of all community members.
These principles guide our efforts:
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.
We are committed to working with others to produce measurable improvements in the health of all community members.
Strategies to improve community health are best determined and implemented through partnerships between health care providers, community members and community-based organizations.
