Mayo Clinic Outpost Mall of America Welcomes

By IBTimes Staff Reporter 

The Mayo Clinic opened its "health laboratory" in the Mall of America Thursday. The famous cancer and research hospital cut the ribbon on the "Create Your Mayo Clinic Health Experience," which is an educational venture meant to inform, and occasionally diagnose, mall patrons.

Shoppers can speak with trained healthcare staff, as well as complete wellness assessments at the Minneapolis, Minn. super-mall. Staff will guide customers through future health plans, and the first-floor clinic features interactive booths and kiosks.
“What differentiates this space is that it’s totally customized, allowing you to do as much or as little as you want. Whether stopping in to buy a book and leave, registering to further personalize your experience, or even meeting privately with a health experience navigator, this is truly a customized experience,” Dr. David Hayes, a cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic, who is leading the Mall of America project, noted in a press release.
