Zumbro Valley Health Center receives significant donation from Mayo Clinic

Fri, Aug 19th, 2016
Posted in Harmony Health & Wellness

ROCHESTER, MN – Zumbro Valley Health Center has announced Mayo Clinic awarded the organization $89,000 to support its integrated care delivery model. This funding will be used to expand the delivery of mental and chemical health, medical and care coordination services to the under- and uninsured populations in Southeast Minnesota.

“Mayo Clinic has been a long-time supporter of our efforts to improve the delivery of care through the integration of services and use of interdisciplinary teams,” said Chief Executive Officer Dave Cook. “Their support has been critical to the development of the infrastructure for our new model of care.”

Cook said funds will provide support for operational expenses.

“Zumbro Valley Health Center has been able to achieve positive outcomes for improving the quality of care for its clients while also reducing health care costs,” said Martha Cashman, Director of Community Relations for Mayo Clinic. “The work being performed by Zumbro Valley Health Center staff aligns with Mayo’s philanthropic priorities to address significant and emergent needs within the community.”

Zumbro Valley Health Center recently completed a two-year pilot with Wilder Research on integrating behavioral health and medical services for clients with co-morbid conditions. The

study found participants shifted from a crisis-focused approach for their care to one that is more comprehensive and consistent. As a result, significant claims savings were seen, with a return

on investment of $2.63 for each dollar spent.
