Virginia Hospital Center Collaborates with Mayo Clinic
to Put Patients First
Virginia Hospital Center is proud to be selected to join the Mayo Clinic Care Network. Through the Network, we will work closely with Mayo Clinic, a world leader in healthcare, to provide unique benefits to our patients. Virginia Hospital Center physicians will collaborate with Mayo Clinic physicians, giving our patients access to Mayo expertise close to home, at no additional cost. And our innovations in care delivery will contribute to a healthier community.
Virginia Hospital Center was selected to join the Mayo Clinic Care Network following a rigorous review process based on quality, service and operational criteria. This honor is a direct reflection of the exemplary care our physicians and staff provide every day.
Through this collaboration, we will continue to build on our foundation as a leader in evidence-based medicine, patient care excellence and strong organizational performance. We will continue to operate as an independent, community-based healthcare provider while leveraging the latest care breakthroughs, research and innovations of Mayo Clinic. We are the same great Health System we’ve always been, but now we are even better.
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.
