WIN Ken Burns Presents The Mayo Clinic on Blu-ray!
This is the story of the renowned institution that has been called the “place for hope when there is no hope.” By combining the history of the institution with stories about present-day patients, the film makes an important contribution to discussions about our commitment to taking care of each other, about the role of money and profit in medicine, and about the very nature of healing itself.
It began in 1883 as an unlikely partnership between a group of Catholic nuns and a country doctor named William Worrall Mayo. In the wake of a deadly tornado in rural Minnesota, Mayo and his two sons, Will and Charlie enlisted the help of Mother Alfred Moes and her nearby Order of Franciscan Sisters to care for the wounded.
Later, Mother Alfred would claim to have had a vision instructing her to build a hospital in Rochester, Minnesota with Mayo as its director. It would become, she said, “world renowned for its medical arts.”
