A new effort to extend care to patients all over the region was announced today, as Guthrie is now joining the Mayo Care Clinic Network. 

This collaboration will allow patients of both entities access to more medical treatment, consultation, and expertise. 

The move is one that not only made sense for Guthrie and Mayo Clinic, but also the patients of each. 

“The idea is to be able to provide more care in our community at a higher level quality,” says Dr. Joseph Scopelliti, President and CEO of Guthrie.

“So the program allows us to reach into the Mayo Clinic for expertise when it’s needed here, with the ideal of reducing the patients’ need to leave the area to travel to incur that expense, that anxiety.”

The move is effective as of today.
