Mayo Clinic Health System launches new Facebook page

October 03, 2011

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — Mayo Clinic Health System has launched a new Facebook page, www.facebook.com/mayoclinichealthsystem. The new page will combine photos, videos, events and information from more than 70 Mayo Clinic Health System sites in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa into a single presence. It will replace older Facebook pages from individual sites.

“While we are reorganizing and condensing our Facebook presence from 12 pages to one, we are not changing our philosophy in how we use Facebook,” said Jeremy Jensen, social media lead for Mayo Clinic Health System. “Engaging with patients, employees and members of our communities is still our top priority. To be effective, we must continue to supply our Facebook fans with good, relevant content and listen to them when they need an ear, so to speak. It’s all about conversation.”

The system page went live in June and has more than 1,000 fans. The old pages will be retired Nov. 1

In northwest Wisconsin, this Facebook change applies to Mayo Clinic Health System sites in Barron, Bloomer, Cameron, Chetek, Chippewa Falls, Colfax, Eau Claire, Elmwood, Glenwood City, Menomonie, Mondovi, Osseo, Prairie Farm and Rice Lake.
