By its own estimates, that’s the annual economic impact generated from its 400-acre research, clinical practice and education powerhouse in Jacksonville. In many respects, it’s just getting started. It took 18 years for Mayo Clinic to move from its St. Luke’s Hospital operation to a new 214-bed hospital.
It took just two more years to grow into its present-day mega-campus off San Pablo Road and Butler Boulevard where it now employs 4,700 employees, including 370 doctors and scientists. Now, under the direction of a new CEO and with a White House-approved treatment approach, it’s exploring ways to become more efficient, extend its reach and expand its programs.
