Mayo Clinic’s Board of Trustees has approved its ‘Bold. Forward. Unbound.’ plan.
This multi-year strategic initiative will involve the reimagining of Mayo Clinic’s Rochester campus and the introduction of new facilities featuring care concepts and digital technologies.
‘Bold. Forward. Unbound.’ in Rochester, USA will introduce five new buildings, related infrastructure and utilities – all with future-oriented design elements.
The project includes intentionally flexible spaces in a healthcare facility, thanks to a flexible grid. In a typical hospital building, certain floors and spaces are designed for surgery, others for hospital beds, and others for imaging support; all have different specifications, like ceiling heights and materials. In Mayo Clinic’s new clinical buildings, specific spaces or entire floors will be able to shift from patient room to operating room, to diagnostic imaging suite as needs change over time.
The new buildings total approximately 2.4 million square feet of space infused with technology to improve care delivery. Structural and architectural components will allow for future expansion. Existing spaces will also be redesigned to support growing patient needs prior to the completion of new facilities. The total investment of the project is $5 billion over six years.
“Mayo Clinic has a 160-year history of leading the world in healthcare innovation. As part of our Bold. Forward. strategy, we have a once-in-three generations opportunity to redefine the future of healthcare,” said Gianrico Farrugia, President and CEO, Mayo Clinic. “Bold. Forward. Unbound. in Rochester will enable transformation by blurring the lines across hospital, clinic and digital care to help our teams anticipate our patients' needs, accelerate more cures and greater connections to our patients.”
