Mayo Clinc, St. Vincent's partner for cancer care in Florida

Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic's branch in Jacksonville, Fla., is teaming up with local St. Vincent's HealthCare to build a new cancer clinic at St. Vincent's Medical Center Riverside, according to The Florida Times-Union.

Mayo Clinic's Jacksonville CEO, Gianrico Farrugia, MD, told The Florida Times-Union the collaboration grew out of talks about ways the two systems could work together. Both systems are known to have strong cancer programs, according to the report.

The new cancer clinic will be built, equipped and staffed by St. Vincent's and Mayo Clinic will provide medical staff, according to the report. Two full-time physicians and 18 rotational physicians will see an anticipated 1,000 patients annually at the new clinic, called the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center at St. Vincent's Riverside.

The 11,500-square-foot center will be located on the fourth floor of the existing DePaul Building on the Riverside campus, according to the report. It will be outfitted with an infusion center for chemotherapy and other specialized care services, according to the report. It is slated to open in the summer of 2016.
