Mayo-Fairmont connects with public
Sunday, June 02, 2019
FAIRMONT — Mayo Clinic Health System-Fairmont held its third annual stakeholder breakfast forum at Red Rock Center in Fairmont.
The event allows Mayo leadership the opportunity to connect with local business people, volunteers, educators, mental and physical health care providers, government officials and others.
Amy Long, administrator at Mayo-Fairmont, outlined key accomplishments over the last year on the local medical campus.
Transitioning from a call center model enabled patients to connect with someone locally, not out of town, when making an appointment. Opening Urgent Care at the clinic expanded services that previously were not offered at the walk-in clinic at Walmart. With equipment purchased from a Fairmont Community Hospital Foundation gift, the eye clinic now offers dry eye services, the only program of its kind in Mayo’s southwest Minnesota district.
