FLORENCE, SC – Carolinas Hospital System and Mayo Clinic announced Wednesday that Carolinas Hospital System has joined the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a growing network of independent health care providers committed to working together to benefit patients and their families.
Carolinas Hospital System physicians will have access to Mayo Clinic expertise to benefit patients. The goal of the network is to help patients get answers to complex medical questions while staying close to home. “Carolinas Hospital System is honored to be selected a Mayo Clinic Care Network member,” says Darcy Craven, CEO, Carolinas Hospital System. “Physicians in our community will collaborate with Mayo Clinic physicians to improve the delivery of health care for patients through high-quality, data-driven, medical care and treatment. Our patients gain the benefits of Mayo Clinic expertise within their own communities.”
“We are pleased to welcome Carolinas Hospital System to the Mayo Clinic Care Network,” says Ryan Uitti, MD, medical director, southeast region, of the Mayo Clinic Care Network. “This relationship is another way for both organizations to build on a common core value: collaborating to provide the best possible care to patients.”
Launched in 2011, the Mayo Clinic Care Network now consists of more than 40 member organizations in the U.S., Mexico, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates. Carolinas Hospital System and other members undergo a rigorous evaluation before joining the network.
