History The

History The Mayo Clinic (1889) emerged from the alternative medicine practice of Dr. William Worrall Mayo (1819-1911) and his two sons, William James Mayo (1861-1939) and Charles Horace Mayo (1865-1939) . Dr. William Worrall Mayo emigrated in 1846 from Salford, United Kingdom, the United States where he became a doctor. The founders of the Mayo Clinic are Dr. Mayo, Stinchfield, Graham, Plummer, Millet, Judd and Balfour. These founding partners shared in the profits of the private practice of medicine and hired paid staff. In 1919, they created the Mayo Properties Association (in Spanish, society Properties May), and went from private practice to become a nonprofit entity. The Mayo brothers, who maintained ownership of the clinic and their equipment fully ceded to the newly created company, following the current Mayo Clinic.In 1892, Dr. Augustus Stinchfield was invited to join the project by Dr. Mayo, who was considered the best doctor in Rochester and vicinity. Once he agreed, Dr. Mayo retired at the age of 73. Dr. Henry Stanley Plummer became a partner in 1901. It is considered by many as the “architect of modern medical practice and primary reason for their early success. He designed many of the systems used universally today as individual medical history based on dossiers and a telephone intercom system. While highlighting the Mayo brothers as surgeons, Dr. Plummer has been widely recognized as a developer and implementer of diagnostic and clinical aspects of medical practice. Dr. Louis B. Wilson was hired in 1907 at the behest of Dr. Plummer, to create research and diagnostic laboratories.The Plummer Building (in Spanish, Plummer Building) of the clinic was designed by William Dawson and Jonathan Ray Corwin architectural firm Ellerbe Round, according to the suggestions of the clinic staff and the guidance of Dr. Plummer. Upon its completion in 1928 was the tallest building in Minnesota, and it was up to the construction of the Foshay Tower (in Spanish, Foshay Tower) in Minneapolis. He joined the National Register of Historic Places (in Spanish, National Register of Historic Places) in 1969, and its bell tower has recently undergone an award-winning restoration. The study consists Ellerbe as responsible for the projects of the Red Building, 1914, the Mayo Institute of Experimental Medicine in 1922, the Plummer Building, 1927, the Mayo Building in 1954, the Gonda Building in 2002 and Rochester Methodist Hospital (in Spanish Red Building, Institute of Experimental Medicine in May, Plummer Building, Building Mayo Gonda Building and Rochester Methodist Hospital respectively).The historic Red Building of 1914 listed as a national monument on the National Register, was demolished in the eighties to build the Siebens Building (in Spanish, Siebens Building) designed by HGA.
