Mayo Clinic Florida
Mayo Clinic traces its heritage to the medical practice of Dr. William Mayo, who settled in Rochester, Minnesota in 1863. His two sons joined the family practice in the 1880s and as their reputation grew, other doctors from around the country joined them in what was to become America’s premiere multi-specialty group practice.
The Mayo Clinic campus in Jacksonville, Florida opened in 1986 as the first expansion of the practice beyond Rochester. Teams of specialists in Jacksonville provide services in more than 40 medical and surgical specialties while a multitude of programs in medical education and research are carried out to improve and inform patient care activities.
With over 500 physicians and scientists, and over 5000 support staff, Mayo Clinic Florida serves patients from all 50 states and over 140 countries across the globe.
The Florida campus is recognized for excellence across several research and patient care programs, with particular acclaim for its leading contributions to the study of Alzheimer’s disease and related brain disorders.
