Mayo Clinic's strong growth has led two Rochester hospitality houses serving medical patients to consider their own expansions…About 10 percent of expected proton-therapy patients will be children, according to Dr. Robert Foote, Mayo chairman of radiology. That means an average of about 10 kids a month will need some type of housing. "We don't have data from other centers, but from my experience with the hospitality houses of Rochester, the number of individuals staying with the patient is typically limited to one or two additional guests, depending on the size of the room," Foote said.
