Healthy communities mean healthy patients, employees, families and friends. At Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato, we have nearly 3,000 employees, providers, volunteers and physicians whose dedication, expertise and community involvement ensure that residents in the communities we serve have access to expert whole-person care.
Mayo Clinic Health System is proud of our commitment to the communities we serve. Each year we publish a Community Report highlighting our accomplishments, community connection, philanthropic impact and more.
Our major areas of influence and impact in the Mankato community include:
