“The eConsult can be a valuable tool for very complicated cases. For these patients, the eConsult allows us to collaborate with thought leaders from Mayo Clinic who have encountered similar cases and can weigh in with their expertise.”
Andrew B. Joel, MD, Urologist, Virginia Hospital Center Physician Group.

"The burden to seek a second opinion is not on the patient. Our doctors here facilitate it for the patient. My patient received the best information possible to make an informed decision. She knows that Mayo Clinic and I are both recommending the same course of treatment.”
Robert Hong, MD, Chief of Radiation Oncology, Virginia Hospital Center.

“This is a collaboration between Mayo Clinic, the world’s finest medical center, and Virginia Hospital Center, a superior regional medical center. Our patients have the best of both worlds. They gain the benefit of Mayo Clinic expertise but without having to travel. They are able to receive the best treatment right here, close to home.”
M. Anthony Casolaro, MD, President, Medical Staff, Virginia Hospital Center.

How Does It Benefit Me?

As part of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, Virginia Hospital Center brings the world-renowned expertise and knowledge of Mayo Clinic to our community. Our physicians have access to the latest Mayo Clinic resources to complement their own expertise when diagnosing and treating patients.

Second Opinions at No Cost to Patients

Through eConsults, our physicians connect with Mayo Clinic experts for additional input on a patient’s care when they believe it will be helpful. Getting a second opinion from Mayo Clinic through an eConsult is easy and efficient, and is provided at no additional cost to the patient. The patient’s electronic medical record is transmitted to Mayo Clinic specialists for consultation. Our physicians receive a response within a week.


Virginia Hospital Center physicians have unlimited access to AskMayoExpert, a state-of-the-art, online, medical reference tool of Mayo Clinic-vetted knowledge on disease management, clinical care guidelines, treatment recommendations and patient education materials for use at the point of care.

Care Close to Home

Our physicians and patients gain the benefits of Mayo Clinic knowledge and expertise in our community, close to home—ensuring that patients need to travel for care only when necessary. In rare circumstances in which a referral for treatment at Mayo Clinic is appropriate, Virginia Hospital Center patients benefit from an expedited referral process.
