Albert Lea and Austin Milestone Celebration
A celebration of Mayo Clinic Health System – Albert Lea and Austin
Mayo Clinic Health System is your trusted health care partner, serving patients in the Albert Lea and Austin areas. We know that where and how you receive health care is very important to you and your family. The goal of this website is to provide accurate, up-to-date information about services located on our Albert Lea and Austin campuses, so you can make the best health care decisions for your family.
First and foremost, you can receive most of your routine, urgent and emergency care on the Albert Lea and Austin campuses, including:
- Clinic visits in primary care, pediatrics, internal medicine and specialty care
- Emergency room care
- Outpatient surgeries and procedures
- Pregnancy care
- Lab and radiology services
- Pharmacy services
Mayo Clinic Health System in Albert Lea and Austin is a single practice with two campuses located in neighboring communities less than 25 miles apart. Work has been done to adjust services on both campuses to ensure patients can continue to receive care close to home.
To make the best use of our resources and to be able to continue to provide safe, high-quality care for our patients, the inpatient (hospital) setting is now integrated on our Austin campus, including:
- Medical, surgical and pediatric hospital care
- Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
- Inpatient surgeries
Keeping most inpatient care on the Austin campus allows us to offer higher levels of care and testing options to patients, and make the best use of capital resources by staffing single, larger units, and avoiding duplication of expensive equipment and technology. It also means there are more providers to share in the on-call schedule when we only staff one unit, which helps us with provider satisfaction and retention.
Our inpatient (hospital) behavioral health services, also known as the Psychiatric Services Unit (PSU) and addiction services are all located on the Albert Lea campus. Bringing these behavioral health services together in one location has created more opportunities for staff collaboration and keeps these related services located together for the convenience of our patients.
