Trinity Health and the Mayo Clinic Care Network

"We welcome our colleagues from Trinity Health, who diligently work to provide patient-centered care, to the Mayo Clinic Care Network" -David Hayes, M.D., medical director, Mayo Clinic Care Network. Trinity Health has joined the Mayo Clinic Care Network (MCCN), effective July 24, 2013. The Mayo Clinic Care Network is a collaborative partnership between Mayo Clinic and member health systems across the country. The agreement effectively places Mayo Clinic's expertise at Trinity's - and our patients' - fingertips.

Trinity Health was founded nearly a century ago to serve a region in need of a quality health care provider, and Trinity continues that mission of service today. By working with such committed organizations, Mayo Clinic hopes to develop new models of care, and increase quality for patients by providing the right care at the right place at the right time."

"One of our strategic imperatives has been to expand and strengthen relationships with other care systems," said John Kutch, CEO of Trinity Health. "Membership in the Mayo Clinic Care Network is a significant step towards that goal. We're excited about what this means for our patients and communities. Working with Mayo Clinic as a member of the Network, we'll be better able to deliver high-quality, best-practice care."

"I am particularly excited for Minot and our surrounding communities because patients will now have access to Mayo expertise without necessarily having to travel," said Dr. Kenneth Keller, medical director of Trinity's Radiology department. "This collaboration offers a boost to the quality and volume of resources available to physicians, hospital staff, and especially, our patients."

Finally, access to Mayo through this collaboration does not impact the fees normally charged to patients at Trinity Health.
