  • Healing
  • Knowledge

In pursuit of promoting greater access to deeper healing, the Rob and Melani Walton Foundation (RMWF) partnered with Mayo Clinic’s Arizona Campus to help physicians learn better, safer, and more comprehensive ways of caring for patients.

In addition to physician training, RMWF supports Mayo Clinic School of Medicine through operational funding. This gift in support of the school’s greatest areas of need—including faculty development and protected time for teaching, the continued evolution of the Science of Health Care Delivery curriculum at Arizona State University (ASU), technology, dual-degree programs, and student services for the Arizona campus—was vital in the establishment of a national footprint for the school.

This significant investment in Mayo’s ongoing knowledge-building and development redefines medical education and quality health care, encouraging constant evaluation of current programs and personnel training in order to improve patient outcomes through more complete healing. The collaboration empowers Mayo to re-evaluate program and collaboration strategies, elevating physicians and staff to be the best they can be for patients.

Through the Mayo Clinic and Arizona State University Alliance for Health, the curriculum for Science of Health Care Delivery inspires greater innovation in medicine and teaches students about how health care systems work.

RMWF’s support was intended as a force multiplier to build momentum and encourage other partners to join in these efforts. As a result, the Mayo Clinic campus in Phoenix is at the cutting edge of innovation and is ranked the number one hospital in Arizona, creating a destination for learning and employment and a trusted partner for healing in the Phoenix community and beyond.
