Mayo Clinic Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida is dedicated to supporting and positively impacting the health and well-being of all people through advances in medical practice, education and research. Our community benefit activities reflect our belief in traditional medical care as well as the confluence of factors that impact health and well-being — socio-economic and environmental factors, lifestyle, and educational components of health and quality of life. On the Florida campus, community benefit activities include investment in programs and initiatives designed to improve the health, well-being and quality of life for local and regional residents and communities.
Mayo Clinic provides funding and in-kind support for new and existing programs and initiatives that address significant and emergent unmet or underfunded needs specific to basic human services, education, workforce development, youth and elderly enrichment, health care disparities, and the built environment. Community benefit activities align efforts to enhance the clinic's capacity to meet its mission, improve individual and overall community health, enable long-term capacity-building and sustainability, and accelerate collaborative endeavors with other community agencies, organizations and constituents.
Mayo Clinic continues to support the Volunteers in Medicine Jacksonville Clinic. The clinic provides free, outpatient, primary health care to low-income, working adults and their families. Mayo provides laboratory analysis of specimens to facilitate diagnosis and treatment. Mayo Clinic also provides cancer screening and treatment for a selection population of patients who are in need of screening and treatment.
Mayo Clinic continued its partnership with the Sulzbacher Center, Northeast Florida's largest provider of comprehensive services for homeless men, women and children. The center is one of a few in the nation to offer a full range of services for the homeless 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mayo Clinic’s contributions include; primary care, mental health and gastroenterology services, primarily at the beaches clinic.
Mayo Clinic is a service provider to WeCare. A system of network providers, WeCare serves as the hub for a volunteer healthcare coalition that provides primary and specialty care to the uninsured, the homeless and the medically underserved residents of Jacksonville. Mayo Clinic serves as a resource for general surgery, gynecology-oncology, and urology surgery screening and treatment.
The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) demonstrate a significant need for education, awareness and responsiveness to mental health challenges in and around the Jacksonville community. In response to that need, Mayo Clinic Florida is collaborating with other health care organizations to train 10,000 citizens in Mental Health First Aid. For more information, register here.
As a result of the CHNA, Mayo Clinic created Wellness Rx in collaboration with New Town Success Zone. It is designed to empower and educate New Town residents with information to improve their overall health through educational programming over an 18-month period. The program, delivered at the Center for the Prevention of Health Disparities on the Edward Waters College campus, consists of two to three educational program and focuses on health disparities and obesity/nutrition/lifestyle activities of the community.
