Mayo’s Center for Innovation receives award

ROCHESTER, Minn. — The Mayo Clinic is known for its world-class health care, but now they are getting an award of a different kind.

Destination Imagination recognizes different companies for their impact on the world with creativity and critical thinking.

This year, the Mayo Clinic’s Center for Innovation received the Risorgimento Award, the highest honor given by Destination Imagination.

“It’s tremendously humbling but now as I think about the next 150 years of Mayo Clinic history and reflect on the first 150 years of our history, to us it’s an immediate challenge for how we’re going to do better tomorrow,” said Dr. Douglas Wood, Medical Director for the Center for Innovation.

Mayo is joining the likes of National Geographic and NASA, who have won the award the past two years.
