Abstract

Mayo Clinic displays steadfast commitment to patient care, referral relations, and health care quality through institutional examples of unique, value-add endeavors that are under way with the Mayo Clinic Patient Experience Subcommittee and the Referring Physician Office. In this article, we share the Mayo Model of Care and patient stories that embody the 8 Mayo Clinic values of respect, compassion, integrity, healing, teamwork, excellence, innovation, and stewardship. The Mayo founders imparted to their staff the passion for patient care by encouraging a fair and just culture for its employees. This culture allows the creation, maintenance, and improvement of clinical care, research studies, and educational curricula, which in turn propagate the mission–“To inspire hope and contribute to health and well-being by providing the best care to every patient through integrated clinical practice, education, and research.”
