Sharing beyond health care

Jul 23, 2018 | Treasure Ransom | @transom

A source of pride among employees is Mayo Clinic’s commitment to improve the lives not only of patients, but also of our communities and society. Mayo Clinic released a Report on Societal Impact, which details how Mayo Clinic provides additional benefits to households, businesses, government and other organizations:

  • generated 167,000 jobs nationwide
  • contributing $28 billion to the U.S. economy
  • invested $710 million in research in 2016 to address unmet needs of patients
  • provided $629.7 million in uncompensated care in 2016
  • educated more than 135,000 learners at our five schools

This effect is a result of Mayo Clinic's unique structure that integrates practice, research and education. On a team-level, employees organize community service projects, like serving meals at the local Ronald McDonald House and conducting food drives.
