Mayo to close Minnesota clinic in November

Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic Health System will close its primary care clinic in La Crescent, Minn., on Nov. 22, according to the Star Tribune.

After the closure, Mayo will encourage patients to see providers at its clinics in Caledonia, Minn., La Crosse, Wis., and Onalaska, Wis.

"This was a difficult and well-considered decision. We are exploring ways that we can provide healthcare services more efficiently and effectively while being good stewards of our resources," Michael Morrey, regional chair of administration for the Mayo Clinic Health System in northwestern Wisconsin, said in a statement to the Star Tribune.

Staff members at the La Crescent clinic have been notified of the change. It's unclear whether layoffs will occur due to the consolidation of services, according to the report.
