Mayo Clinic documentary airs Sept. 25, 26 on PBS

The Mayo Clinic: Faith - Hope - Science — a two-hour documentary on the Rochester, Minn.-based health system's 150-year history — airs Sept. 25 on PBS.

The showing will begin at 9 p.m. ET with a second broadcast Sept. 26 at 10 p.m. ET. American filmmaker Ken Burns produced and directed the documentary.

The documentary chronicles the story of William Worrall Mayo, an English immigrant who started practicing medicine with his sons in Rochester, Minn.

The Mayos took charge of recovery efforts with the help of the Sisters of St. Francis after a deadly tornado devastated their community in 1883. The event pushed the clinic forward on its path to becoming a worldwide model for collaborative patient care, research and education.

The documentary also features interviews with patients who have sought treatment at Mayo Clinic, including John McCain and the Dalai Lama.
