The Mayo Clinic: Faith - Hope - Science tells the story of a unique medical institution that has been called a "Medical Mecca," the "Supreme Court of Medicine," and the "place for hope where there is no hope." The Mayo Clinic began in 1883 as an unlikely partnership between the Sisters of Saint Francis and a country doctor named William Worrall Mayo after a devastating tornado in rural Minnesota. Since then, it has grown into an organization that treats more than a million patients a year from all 50 states and 150 countries. Dr. Mayo had a simple philosophy he imparted to his sons Will and Charlie: "the needs of the patient come first." They wouldn't treat diseases...they would treat people. In a world where healthcare delivery is typically fragmented among individual specialties, the Mayo Clinic practices a multi-specialty, team-based approach that has, from its beginnings, created a culture that thrives on collaboration.
Collaborative efforts from the inception of the Mayo Clinic
In my opinion, this was an inspiring documentary about how medical solutions for excellent care can be achieved through collaborative efforts and on going education such as shown in this film. I enjoyed the photos and quotes from the three Dr. Mayos. One learns how the Mayo clinic began and how it continues it's commitment to education, social equality for health care, and fast accurate diagnosis and treatments at Mayo (past and present).
