Mayo Clinic announced plans today to renovate six downtown subways...Work will begin in the first zone, and at times construction will be underway in more than one zone. "To lead in health care and to truly be in a category of one, we must provide an exceptional experience in every way," stated Mayo Clinic CEO and President Dr. Gianrico Farrugia in the announcement of the work.

Context: The pedestrian subways that make it easy and convenient to get around Mayo Clinic in downtown Rochester are about to get a major upgrade.

The improvements in six subway areas will lighten and brighten the experience for Mayo Clinic visitors and staff, creating more attractive areas for people to connect, rest and recharge. More contemporary and appealing design, wheelchair-friendly flooring and clear navigation will make it easier for patients and caregivers to get where they're going.

The planned changes will enhance the comfort and convenience of patients, families and staff. Work will begin in early November and be completed by December 2020. You can read and view more about the enhancements on Mayo Clinic News Network.
