U.S. News & World Report — What Does a Hospital's Brand Name Mean? by Steve Sternberg Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic are also intent on improving outcomes and the patient experience, though they're branching out in a different way. Rather than accumulate hospitals – Mayo already owns 22, while Cleveland Clinic has 11 – they're building relationships with the goal of sharing their expertise and opening doors to new research opportunities. Both systems carefully screen potential affiliates. "It's a pretty deep dive," says David Hayes, medical director of the Mayo Clinic Care Network. Once affiliated, the institutions share their medical wisdom in a kind of plug-and-play format. Hayes likens the concept to the "Intel Inside" sticker on his laptop. Patients gain access to "a deeper bench of specialists."

The Advisory Board — Thinking about affiliating with Cleveland Clinic or Mayo Clinic? — Here's how it works, both the Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic have more than 20 hospital affiliates. Steve Sternberg writes for U.S. News & World Report about how both organizations approach their partnerships—and what's in it for their partners, too. Affiliates gain access to the larger systems' expertise in improving care quality and the patient experience…Jeffrey DiLisi, CMO at Mayo affiliate Virginia Hospital Center (VHC), says his hospital has "great doctors on our medical staff, and they do great things, but we don't have anyone on staff who treats only heart tumors." He adds, "Now our VHC patients have access to specialists with that kind of expertise."

Yaszemski said medical experts refer to it as a fracture dislocation of the C1 and C2 vertebrae, or a traumatic anterolisthesis of C1 and C2.

CBS Sports — Report: Giants taking precautions to prevent MRSA spread by Ryan Wilson — Two years after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had to deal with a MRSA outbreak, the New York Giants are doing the same, according to an ESPN.com report…The Mayo Clinic explains that MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) "is caused by a strain of staph bacteria that's become resistant to the antibiotics commonly used to treat ordinary staph infections." It can be life-threatening, though Fells is expected to be okay, a source told Graziano.

CBS Sports Latest Muhammad Ali renaissance prompts new round of anger by Lyle Fitzsimmons — Muhammad Ali is back on the cover of Sports Illustrated. And writers of all shapes, sizes and ages are recalling where they were or what they've heard about his most legendary victory -- 40 years ago this past Thursday…Given that Ali hadn't fought in two years, wasn't at normal lucidity in training camp and had gotten a dubious bill of health from a pre-licensing Mayo Clinic exam, there's zero excuse for Holmes having landed anything more than a fight-night handshake. His management shouldn't have signed it. The commission shouldn't have sanctioned it.

Holmes Jr. of the Mayo Clinic, who wrote a commentary in the journal with another heart specialist, said the new report raises important questions, including how long the risk lasts, whether it's due to clots or something else, and whether it's more common with tube versus surgically placed valves.

Post-Bulletin  Letter: Mayo Clinic's increased demands on employees could reduce level of service by June Lee-Cahoon — Through various articles, I see the Mayo Clinic is performing exquisitely in the financial arena. Sadly, part of that performance was attained by significantly increasing demands on employees. This unfortunately may lead to a drop in world status as a leader in medical care and advances. Certainly not out of vengeance by the professionals employed, but by lack of time to process and preform at their highest professional levels as has been earned and expected from patients at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic.

Reason.com Expecting Scientifically Sound Nutritional Guidance from the Feds? Fat Chance For example, I previously blasted the DGAC's work for suggesting the federal government send scolding text messages to obese Americans and its call for what I termed "a steady diet of taxes and other intrusive policy recommendations."

Earlier this year, for example, I interviewed a prominent DGAC critic, Dr. Edward Archer, who argues, in a Mayo Clinic Proceedings article, that the DGAC is the latest federal government construct to present "anecdotal evidence as science."
