Doctors from every medical specialty work together to care for patients, joined by common systems and a philosophy of 'the needs of the patient come first.' More than 2,500 physicians and scientists and 42,000 allied health staff work at Mayo Clinic, which has sites in Rochester, Minn., Jacksonville, Fla., and Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz. Collectively, the three locations treat more than half a million people each year. http://clinicaltrials.mayo.edu/"
