TPT’s Almanac on Mayo Clinic’s Expansion
On Friday, the Destination Medical Center board, of which I am Mayo Clinic’s representative, was kicked off by Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton. Over the next 20 years the state of Minnesota will contribute $585 million of tax dollars as part of a $6 billion investment to upgrade Rochester MN and the surrounding area, including a $3+ billion investment by Mayo to make it the nation’s leading medical destination. This is the largest such undertaking ever by the state of Minnesota, and I feel privileged to be part of it. Here is the story and interview by public television on “Almanac”: http://www.mnvideovault.org/mvvPlayer/customPlaylist2.php?id=24745&select_index=0&popup=yes#2.
