Wellstar has joined the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a growing network of like-minded organizations that share a commitment to better serving patients and their families.
Wellstar providers will now have round-the-clock access to Mayo-vetted medical information and guidelines through AskMayoExpert, a web-based provider resource.
Through their Wellstar physicians, patients will have access to Mayo Clinic’s expertise in all specialties while continuing to receive close-to-home healthcare at Wellstar.
As part of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a Wellstar specialist can request a consultation with a Mayo physician electronically for additional opinions on complex cases, at no cost to the patient, and usually receive feedback in two business days.
Wellstar and Mayo Clinic share a common philosophy, commitment and mission to improve healthcare delivery. Working together, they hope to ensure the best care and treatment plans for even the most complicated diagnoses.
Wellstar is the largest health system in the southeast and the only one in Metro Atlanta to be selected as a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network. The network, which began in 2011, consists of organizations throughout the continental United States as well as a member in Mexico and in Puerto Rico.
