Mayo vs. Cleveland Clinic: Which affiliate network reigns?

 

Breaking down each's affiliate network

 

Both are known for providing some of the most specialized, highest quality care in the nation while also focusing on health of their local communities. And both have demonstrated healthy appetites for expanding their brand nationally. Each owns facilities outside their flagship communities. (Mayo owns flagship facilities in Florida and Arizona, and its health system operates facilities in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Georgia; Mayo also has a Florida presence, plus Clinics in Toronto and the soon-to-be-opened Abu Dhabi medical center).

Yet, when it comes to each's ability to truly expand their brand nation-wide, it most easily achieved through their affiliate facilities.

The Cleveland Clinic Affiliate Network provides regional systems with clinical consulting and a branded affiliation, as well as the opportunity to enter into national bundled payment contracts with employers. So far, 14 systems have signed on to be either cardiovascular or orthopedic and spine network affiliates — the specialties represented in the network to date. Mayo has entered into 28 affiliations with hospitals through its Mayo Clinic Care Network, which provides e-consults and other clinical expertise to local healthcare providers.

Here's a side-by-side look at Mayo's vs. Cleveland Clinic's affiliates:
