Having access to quality, convenient healthcare in Rochester is a highly valued asset among area residents, as well as the rest of the country, as the city is the home base of the world-renowned Mayo Clinic and the growing Olmsted Medical Center. The community has a number of other trusted medical resources, offering care in various specialties and subspecialties. In addition, a host of health-related organizations reside within the Rochester area, offering patients unmatched support and access to pertinent information.


OMC’s network is anchored by the Level IV Trauma-designated Olmsted Medical Center Hospital, which provides comprehensive care in a variety of areas, along with 24-hour emergency medical services. The multi-specialty Rochester Southeast Clinic serves as the main clinic in OMC's system, offering care in everything from ear/nose/throat, family and internal medicine, and asthma and allergy to breast health, orthopedics and bariatric (weight-loss) surgery. OMC also operates two walk-in FastCare clinics in Rochester’s Shopko stores, in addition to Rehabilitation Services and 10 primary care branch clinics in surrounding communities.

The system provides a variety of community education programs, which focus on prevention, self-management and healthy living. OMC has a close relationship with various institutions of higher learning in the Rochester area, and regularly hosts health professionals and students for educational purposes.


Rochester is home to one of three campuses of the highly distinguished Mayo Clinic, a not-for-profit medical resource that serves as the first and largest integrated group practice in the world. The Mayo Clinic in Rochester also includes Saint Mary’s Hospital and Rochester Methodist Hospital, as well as a strong educational program. In addition to treating over a million patients each year, the Mayo Clinic dedicates itself to training the medical leaders of the future through five schools: Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education, Mayo Graduate School, Mayo School of Health Sciences, Mayo Medical School and Mayo School of Continuing Medical Education, which began offering nearly 270 continuing medical education courses in 1996.
