Mayo Clinic’s recently announced collaboration with a Columbus hospital may signal other Georgia ventures for the renowned Minnesota-based health system. St. Francis hospital will be the first Georgia organization to join the Mayo Clinic Care Network. Under the agreement, its physicians will be able to connect with Mayo specialists on questions of complex care using an electronic consulting technique. Mayo will also supply other informational tools.
The Georgia Department of Human Services has announced it will award grants to some of the state's Aging and Disability Resource Connection centers to provide counseling to families looking for long-term care facilities.
