THE MAYO CLINIC'S BEST DEVICES

March 23, 2006

Mayo Clinic's main calling will always be treating patients, but, in surprisingly short order, it has become a player in a brand-new business -- medical devices. In the past, it would simply license the technologies it developed to companies, which turned them into products. Now it's able to develop products for sale to other hospitals, thanks to its ability to outsource some of the design and all of the manufacturing, sales, and marketing functions.
