Mayo Clinic to Add Up to 1,000 Physicians With Destination Medical Center

Destination Medical Center — Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic's $5 billion, 20-year expansion plan — is expected to generate tens of thousands of jobs, a decent number of those being physicians, according to a Post-Bulletin report.

Mayo Clinic today employs more than 38,000 people, but the DMC project is expected to add another 14,000 to 16,000 jobs directly linked to the health system. Physicians and scientists are estimated to account for 911 to 1,041 of those positions, while allied health professionals will account for 12,226 to 13,973. The jobs will be added over the course of the 20-year plan.

In all, the DMC project is expected to create 26,800 to 32,200 direct jobs in Rochester over the 20 year period, including those in the restaurants and retail, commercial/professional jobs and the hospitality industry. The system estimates an additional 10,000 to 15,000 indirect new jobs will be created as a result of the re-spending of direct expenditures related to the Mayo Clinic and DMC projects.
