Baton Rouge hospital joins Mayo Clinic network

Baton Rouge (La.) General and the Baton Rouge Clinic have joined the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a group of 47 independent health systems that can tap into Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic's resources.

By joining the network, Baton Rouge General's physicians will gain access to Mayo's expertise, research and diagnostic and treatment resources. Patients can have cases reviewed.

Patients will not be billed when a physician at Baton Rouge General consults with the Mayo Clinic, according to the report. Baton Rouge instead will pay a fee to be part of the system.

"We're constantly sharing new things that we learn from other organizations within the network, as well as from the Mayo Clinic," said Ryan Uitti, MD, medical director of the Mayo Clinic Care Network's Southeast region. "It's a way [for Mayo Clinic] to touch more patients than we would ever be able to touch individually."
