Tom Bour stood on the roof of the Mayo Clinic Hospital in northeast Phoenix and pointed to the land below.
The hospital's top administrator looked past the dozens of parking spaces and out to the east, to undeveloped acres of brush and dirt. Bour smiled and spoke of the hope for the medical buildings that may come as the hospital begins its 12th year…
"But just over the course of a decade, this whole thing has come together. The hospital just finished its 11th year." Bour knows that some people, believing that Mayo is only for the rich, may never turn to the hospital.
