Why We Give: B. Vittal Shenoy, M.D., and Maya B. Shenoy
Mayo Clinic’s pillars of patient care, education and research reflect and inculcate core values requisite in health care sciences and humanity. Mayo Clinic’s philosophy of practice mirrors the Sanskrit term for the Buddhist concept of mudita (contentment from selfless and compassionate action to bring happiness to or relieve suffering of others). These principles and our personal experiences over the last 37 years at Mayo Clinic motivate our continuing support of Mayo Foundation. ■

"Tackling the toughest health care challenges is what Mayo does best. No wonder they are ranked so highly in so many medical areas. That’s why we decided to support Mayo Clinic’s mental health programs."
"To say the level of care at Mayo is unique is an understatement, and it is something I have not experienced anywhere else. When one hears that the patient comes first at Mayo, it is true. I have no words to thank Mayo Clinic. Mayo has given me the gift of extending my life. I am grateful that I can give back and know that in some way I am helping to make a difference.”
“Mayo Clinic is a special place — it’s the cohesiveness, competency and compassion shown by the doctors and staff and the immediate follow-up. The level of care is just so different, and it’s a pleasure to be on campus. All in all, it’s just such a fantastic organization. We believe in giving back, and it gives us such joy to give to Mayo.”
