Virginia Hospital Center is proud to be part of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a unique collaboration that connects our physicians with world-renowned Mayo Clinic specialists and resources. Through the Network, our patients have access to Mayo Clinic expertise, close to home, at no additional cost.
“This collaboration advances our mission To Be the Best Health System. The results of our working with the Mayo Clinic will be enhanced care, greater peace of mind, and better value for our patients and their families,” says James B. Cole, President & Chief Executive Officer, Virginia Hospital Center. “The best just keeps getting better.”
Mayo Clinic established the Mayo Clinic Care Network in 2011 to promote physician collaboration among independent organizations interested in improving the delivery of healthcare. Today, the Network has 32 members in 19 states, Puerto Rico and Mexico. Virginia Hospital Center is the only member hospital in the Washington, DC metro area.
Virginia Hospital Center was selected to join the Mayo Clinic Care Network following an extensive review process that examined every aspect of the Hospital’s performance. The Mayo Clinic reviewers took special note of Virginia Hospital Center’s commitment to evidence-based medicine, excellence in patient care and organizational strength.
“Culturally and philosophically, our organizations are very similar,” says David Hayes, MD, Medical Director, Mayo Clinic Care Network. “In particular, we were struck by the excellent quality and safety Virginia Hospital Center has achieved.”
