My employer has opened its first Mayo Express Care facility in Rochester, Minn. It’s intended to serve patients with conditions that need prompt attention but that don’t need emergency department care. You can read a bit more about the service here, but thanks to YouTube you can take a tour of the new facility.
The business blogger for the Rochester Post-Bulletin, Jeff Kiger, posted this video on his blog last Friday. That’s really the only promotion of the video we’ve done, and it has had about 600 views so far on YouTube. (It got a lot more views on our intranet.) So the YouTube experiment has been interesting.
Jane Sarasohn-Kahn had written about this new service on her Health Populi blog when the story first ran in the Minneapolis Star Tribune in November. She’s been a health care consultant for 20 years and has some interesting perspectives.
