Storyline

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.

A Peek Into What Health Care Could/Should Be
14 May 2020 | by iquineSee all my reviews

(Flash Review)

The nation needs to follow the Mayo's Vision as it truly puts people over profits. Not that profits aren't important but their passion to give patients the best possible best care is refreshing. The documentary does a nice job of blending historical chronology with modern patients health troubles and how Mayo attempted to cure them with unique approaches. Many of the unique or first of a kind cures are showcased. The vision of the original Mayo family is the underlying focus and is very impressive. One of the key factors that is still in practice today are that the Mayo Staff are salaried rather than paid by the quantity of patients or services they provide; needed or not.
