We have been expanding and remodeling many areas in recent years in order to provide a modern, up-to-date environment for our patients. Recently, we remodeled our clinic work area to meet the needs of our staff needing additional space for better care for our patients. Our new emergency, surgical and cancer center spaces are noted most often by staff and patients. Mayo Clinic in Rochester modeled their endoscopy suite after ours.

Family Health Clinic

The Family Health Clinic offers the full range of services found in any modern clinic. The types of patients seen in the clinic reflect those in any busy family physician's office, and consultation is available from Mayo Clinic Health System staff whenever necessary.

Continuity of care for both inpatients and outpatients is enhanced by the close proximity of the clinic and hospital. Residents can care for their outpatients and inpatients without ever going outside.

Residents spend one to two half-days per week in the clinic during their first year, three half-days per week during their second year, and four half-days per week during their third year. Faculty members are present during all clinic hours to provide instruction, support and supervision.
