Tucson Medical Center is a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a national network of organizations committed to better serving patients and their families through collaboration. Members of the network have access to Mayo Clinic knowledge and expertise to give their patients additional peace of mind when making health care decisions, while continuing to offer the highest quality and value of care close to home.
The Mayo Clinic Care Network extends Mayo Clinic’s knowledge and expertise to physicians and providers interested in working together in the best interest of their patients.
TMC physicians are able to connect with Mayo Clinic specialists on questions of patient care using an electronic consulting. TMC physicians also have access to Mayo-vetted medical information through the AskMayoExpert database. These tools, in addition to health care consulting, help TMC provide the best care for its patients as well as improve its systems and the health of the community.
The foundation for this relationship is a shared treatment philosophy that is focused on best practices and evidence-based medical care.
TMC’s membership in the network allows physicians to collaborate and access the expertise that is a hallmark of Mayo Clinic, even as patients continue receiving care as close to home as possible.
