Patients will now be able to visit the new Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, a facility created through a partnership between Jacksonville, Fla.-based St. Vincent's HealthCare and the Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic, according to the Jacksonville Business Journal.
The facility officially opened Oct. 17. It is housed on the same grounds as St. Vincent's Riverside, Fla., hospital campus.
Officials said that physicians from Mayo's department of hematology and oncology will staff the clinic, but St. Vincent's will handle all other administrative and clinical responsibilities. The facility will offer patients services such as medical oncology, chemotherapy and multidisciplinary disease specialized care for different types of cancer, according to the article.
"This collaboration is all about providing the people of our community access to the most advanced cancer care available anywhere, right here at home," said Tom VanOsdol, COO and interim CEO of St. Vincent's, in a statement released by the hospital. "Patients will receive the best of both worlds: world-renowned cancer care delivered by Mayo physicians in the holistic, compassionate tradition of St. Vincent's and in our beautiful setting along the St. Johns River."
