The Mayo Clinic: Faith – Hope – Science

The Mayo Clinic: Faith – Hope – Science chronicles the history of Mayo Clinic, from its roots as an unlikely partnership between a country doctor and an order of Franciscan nuns to its position today as a worldwide model for patient care, research and education.

Featuring more than 400 compelling archival and modern images, as well as the complete script from the film, the book demonstrates how the institution’s remarkable 150-year history continues to inspire the way medicine is practiced there today. In addition, a series of case studies reveals patients, doctors and nurses in their most private moments as together they face difficult diagnoses and embark on uncertain treatments.

The film and this companion book tell the story of an organization that has managed to stay true to its primary value — the needs of the patient come first. Together, they make an important contribution to the critical discussions about the delivery of health care that are happening today in America — and the world. Written in an engaging, accessible style, this book recounts the history of Mayo Clinic and tells the story of the Mayo-Franciscan collaboration through the prism of Mayo Clinic’s institutional values.
