“Recognitions like this are a testament to our skilled and compassionate staff who place patients’ needs first every day,” says Dr. Decker. “Mayo Clinic has a long tradition and deep organizational commitment to delivering high-value health care that best meets patients’ needs. We take great pride in developing the most innovative treatments and care delivery models in an effort to best serve our patients.
