Located at the heart of the Mayo Clinic’s Rochester campus, the Leslie and Susan Gonda Building represents the largest building project in Mayo’s history and is the centerpiece of its integrated practice. The building continues Mayo’s pioneering spirit as the leader in state-of-the-art patient care and design.

The building is designed to physically harmonize and with structural connections to the adjacent Mayo Building on all floors, increasing patient convenience and to encourage integration and collaboration of healthcare professionals. Specialty areas are clustered together for efficiency and ease of movement for patients and staff.

This is a highly flexible facility that will allow for expansion, redesign, and accommodation of evolving technologies and biomedical discoveries, making the facilities ready to support the next 100 years of medical advances. Building space has the potential to be maximally used for clinical exam and supporting activities, education needs, clinical research space, procedural activities, and contiguous hospital and non-hospital space.
