A story of Mayo Clinic history
Honoring the people of Mayo Clinic who served with distinction to support America's armed forces
Mayo Clinic’s service to the U.S. military began in the Civil War and continues to the present day. This film tells stories from the past and present of doctors and nurses putting themselves in harm’s way, researchers developing new ways to protect combatants, educators preparing military medical personnel for battlefield duty and Mayo health care providers helping wounded warriors reclaim their lives. For more than 150 years, Mayo Clinic has been proud to serve the military and its country with its primary value: the needs of the patient come first.
Mayo Clinic Heritage Films produces original documentaries and dramatizations about key aspects of Mayo's history.
