St. Elizabeth Healthcare with its six Northern Kentucky hospitals is now a member of the Mayo Clinic Center Care Network. This is the first hospital organization in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana to be accepted into this network.
With the Mayo Network, patients of St Elizabeth Edgewood receive the benefits of the Mayo Clinic’s expertise, while avoiding personal travel to Rochester, Minnesota in most cases.
The hospital uses a system called eConsults which allows physicians on both sides of the network to have access to records and communication about particular patient cases. The Kentucky doctors also have access into the Mayo Clinic’s information databases. There is no extra charge to patients for these services.
St. Elizabeth Healthcare has six facilities throughout Northern Kentucky: St. Elizabeth Edgewood, St. Elizabeth Florence, St. Elizabeth Fort Thomas, St. Elizabeth Falmouth, St. Elizabeth Covington and St. Elizabeth Grant.
