Remembering the Franciscan Spirit: the Value of Compassion

By Treasure Ransom, @transom

The Mayo Clinic Values Council invites you to remember that the spiritual roots of our Mayo founders, Dr. W.W. Mayo and Mother Alfred Moes, OSF are as relevant and important as ever to the care our patients receive.  Today the Mayo/Franciscan Values thrive in an environment that recognizes that spirituality is an integral dimension of compassionate care and healing.

Compassion: Provide the best care, treating patients and their family members with sensitivity and empathy.

Compassion

 

Dr. William Mayo: "Perhaps the ability not only to acquire the confidence of the patient, but to deserve it, to see what the patient desires and needs, comes through the sixth sense we call intuition, which in turn comes from wide experience and deep sympathy for, and devotion to, the patient, giving to the possessor remarkable ability to achieve results."

 

Mayo Angelou: "People will forget what you said, and what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.”
