For more than 150 years, Mayo Clinic has cultivated a culture of collaboration in working to discover new medical innovations. Researchers and physician-scientists work side-by-side to turn knowledge into breakthrough therapies and critical advances in patient care. Access to the highest quality care sets Rochester apart. State-of-the-art medical facilities and the world’s brightest minds answer the unmet needs of patients to provide expert, whole-person care.

To help illustrate the many ways individuals are transforming Rochester, DMC has created a video series called “DMC Rochester, MN Storyteller Videos.” These snapshots of forward-thinking people and approaches showcase the opportunities that exist in Rochester as DMC sets in motion a new future for America’s City for Health.

In the Middle of Medicine

25 years ago, he came to Rochester, Minnesota to learn a new medical technique. Today, Andre Terzic, M.D., Ph.D., and director of the Center for Regenerative Medicine at Mayo Clinic, says he is still learning.

“People turn toward Rochester and Mayo Clinic and ask: ‘what is new at Mayo? How are we advancing the field?’” Terzic says. “A Destination Medical Center focus will further enable the city to be a leading forum for the health care of the future.”

Terzic sees the DMC initiative as a dream turned reality for future generations. “Science and medicine are the cornerstones of future healthcare,” he says. “To imagine, to design, to build a city of the future is a transformative experience.”
