Mayo Clinic Health System - Southeast Minnesota

In Southeast Minnesota, Community Engagement builds and sustains relationships in the communities where we serve patients and where our employees live and work. These relationships are vital to sustain Mayo Clinic as the trusted health care provider and committed community partner.

The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) identifies priority issues that shape community engagement.

Community Giving

Mayo Clinic supports the communities it serves through a robust community giving program that aims to improve the health and well-being of the community, enable community capacity building and/or sustainability and address social determinants of health for improved quality of life.

Specific guidelines in Southeast Minnesota ensure that requests from organizations asking for support in the form of money, in-kind services or sponsorship of special events align with Mayo Clinic’s mission, not-for-profit requirements, values, strategic objectives and budget.
