For more than 150 years, Mayo Clinic’s multidisciplinary team of medical experts has relentlessly pursued answers for patients who need hope and healing. Through our mission of clinical practice, education and research, our 60,000 employees work seamlessly and with commitment to improve the lives not only of our patients, but also of each other, our students, communities and society.

In this report, we present inspiring stories that illustrate the impact of our mission.

  • Sharing Perspectives focuses on how our team-based, patient-guided approach to clinical care benefitted 1.3 million patients from 140 countries in 2015.
  • Sharing Expertise examines how clinical, educational and business partnerships are extending Mayo Clinic’s reach, helping advance life-changing medical developments for people worldwide.
  • Sharing Compassion addresses our deeply rooted tradition of giving back to communities by working with a wide range of organizations to strengthen our world. In fact, one of Mayo Clinic’s largest community impacts is economic — creating more than 167,000 jobs nationwide and generating $28 billion for America’s economy in 2015.

We collaborate with our communities to accomplish this important work — sharing resources and perspectives to address the needs that we jointly identify. By working together, we’ll continue to fulfill Mayo Clinic’s mission and make a positive impact on people near and far.
