While many come to Mayo Clinic seeking answers for unique medical conditions, meeting the everyday, as well the complex, needs of our primary health care patients also is at the heart of what we do. That’s why we’ve made a major investment in the Baldwin clinic.

For the past few years, Employee and Community Health (ECH) patients have been able to see specialists in primary care. But the major renovation of the first floor of Baldwin has created a “hub” for Integrated Community Specialties (ICS), making it easier and more convenient for patients to promptly access specialty care ranging from physical therapy to cardiology consultations.

There also is a brand-new, full-service pharmacy, offering you one-stop prescription ordering, pick-up and consultations when coming to the clinic. Physical therapy and rehabilitation services have new spaces, including a gym, which further coordinates care for patients.

The new space encourages collaboration between specialists, medication management therapy pharmacists, and primary care providers as they consider your overall care. Building on the relationships you have with your primary care providers and care teams can improve the likelihood that you’ll stay with a treatment plan.

“This renovation enhances how our care teams offer the right care at the right time in the right place,” says Dr. Sarah Crane, ECH medical director. “We also hope you’ll find the first floor more inviting, comfortable and attractive.”

On Friday, June 8, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., you’re invited to check out the new non-patient-care areas and sample some refreshments.
