Mayo Clinic adds Mexico hospital to care network

Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic has added Centro Médico Puerta de Hierro in Guadalajara, Mexico to the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a group of independent health systems that work closely with Mayo to improve quality standards.

Centro Médico Puerta de Hierro operates five hospitals and other facilities in the Guadalajara metropolitan area. As part of the network, the system will have access to a database for medical information created by Mayo Clinic specialists that offers medical protocols and treatment recommendations, electronic consultations and second opinions with Mayo physicians and live video conferences with Mayo specialists to discuss complex cases.

"By providing a second medical opinion, we at Centro Médico Puerta de Hierro are now capable of providing our patients the advantage of broader diagnostic results supported by the advice and expertise of Mayo Clinic," said Alejandro Gil Luna, general director of Centro Médico Puerta de Hierro. "Mayo Clinic specialists are not only prestigious in the U.S., but around the world."
