This story covers a century of sweeping change in medicine, as well as the constant devotion and faith of the Sisters of St. Francis, who founded Saint Marys Hospital of Mayo Clinic. Told by a member of the Rochester Franciscans, The Sisters' Story brings to life these dedicated, hardworking women, who fulfilled their calling in service to patients.

The "miracle of relationships" at the heart of Mayo Clinic.

With unwavering faith in their mission, the Sisters met the challenges of war and peace, economic adversity and medical progress.

Saint Marys started as a 27-bed hospital with no electricity or running water.

Today it is one of the world's largest and most advanced health care facilities, a model of medical excellence and human kindness.
