For Minnesota, greatness lies in two visionary health care proposals

By Logan Lafferty

It’s time to think big about Minnesota’s health care destiny. We stand at a crossroads…Second, the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, the state’s largest private employer, is asking for a state contribution of $500 million in order to create a $5 billion “Destination Medical Center.” Mayo is known worldwide as being synonymous with quality and innovation. It will certainly be a permanent fixture here, but it needs to be allowed to be all it can be. Mayo is poised to grow. Other states are willing to invest in this expansion if Minnesota legislators do not heed Mayo’s warning. It needs to grow in Minnesota.
