Mayo Clinic Health System is committed to working collaboratively with local partners to regularly assess and address the health needs within its local communities, as well as advance population health locally to globally through integrated clinical practice, education and research.
We work with hundreds of community partners on collective efforts to strengthen the quality of life, health and well-being of all in our communities. We approach this work with the following 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.
We are 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.
Federal regulations require that all hospitals in the United States study and report on the health needs of communities they serve.
