Mayo Clinic Explores Medical Facility In India

ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — The Mayo Clinic is looking for ways to connect with patients around the world and is exploring an expansion to India.

Clinic spokesman Bryan Anderson says Mayo wants to share knowledge in new ways and improve global health. The Rochester-based health system operates hospitals in Arizona and Florida as well as clinics and hospitals in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press says the Economic Times in India reported earlier the GMR Group was in talks with Mayo and Apollo Hospitals Group about the plan to open a facility. Apollo operates 54 hospitals, including medical centers, in India.
