A Year Accelerating Answers

Eds Note: Through expertise, innovation and a commitment to its patient-first values, Mayo Clinic plays a leading role in the worldwide pandemic response. Watch Mayo Clinic's recent virtual event of the organization's efforts here.

When the first patient arrived at Mayo Clinic’s Rochester campus with a suspected COVID-19 infection, a multidisciplinary care team was ready to respond. This team would later be known at Mayo as the “Super Six.”

In December, the Super Six were the first Mayo Clinic staff members in Rochester to receive COVID-19 vaccinations. It was a milestone in a transformative journey for these frontline care workers. For more than a year, Mayo Clinic staff have adapted to rapid change while ensuring the needs of patients come first.

Mayo Clinic’s patient-first pandemic response has come with challenges, but it has also presented opportunities to reimagine health care. Listen to members of the Super Six share their experiences and explain why Mayo Clinic’s pandemic response will transform the future of health care.
