The authoritative biography of Dr. William Worrall Mayo and his physician sons.
The Mayo Clinic: Faith - Hope - Science DVD
The Mayos had a simple philosophy, “the needs of the patient come first.”
It began in 1883 as an unlikely partnership between a group of Catholic nuns and a country doctor named William Worrall Mayo. In the wake of a deadly tornado in rural Minnesota, Mayo and his two sons, Will and Charlie enlisted the help of Mother Alfred Moes and her nearby Order of Franciscan Sisters to care for the wounded. Later, Mother Alfred would claim to have had a vision instructing her to build a hospital in Rochester, Minnesota with Mayo as its director. It would become, she said, “world renowned for its medical arts.”
