Why Mayo Clinic
Do you envision a world where quality, patient-centered health care is as close as your home? A future where top-notch, monitored care is delivered seamlessly without the boundaries of physical location, access or acuity? Well so does Mayo Clinic, and advances in clinical and consumer technology are making that vision a reality.

Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire is leading the way in delivering care outside of the boundaries of a traditional hospital and right from the patient's home. Virtual care offerings will leverage technology to serve high-acuity patients with new options for recovering at home.

The offering is based on three new and expanded capabilities:
  1. A physician-led 24/7 virtual monitoring center
  2. On-demand acute medical care management, and
  3. Rapid-response teams to deliver supplies and services

We believe that these capabilities, along with Mayo Clinic’s nationally recognized clinical care, will allow patients to transition from the hospital to home faster than ever before, while ensuring quality and safety along the way.

It’s an exciting time of growth and we invite you to be part of A life Changing Career.
