Patients Inspired New Integrated Space for ENT Practice in Minnesota

by

The Mayo Clinic Department of Otorhinolaryngology (ENT, or ear, nose and throat) in Rochester, Minn. recently moved from their locations in three different buildings to one new, integrated space on the 12th floor of the Gonda Building. The new floor better serves patients by bringing ENT, audiology, cochlear implantation services, balance and vestibular testing and hearing aid services together in one location.

In the video below, Charles Beatty, M.D., chair of otorhinolaryngology, describes features of the new space.

The 12th floor of the Gonda Building was designed with the help of some ENT patients and families. Holly Bowe and her 8 year-old son, Porter, have spent a lot of time in ENT appointments, as Porter received cochlear implants as an infant. Holly was one of the individuals who provided input in the design and planning. In the video below, she describes Porter’s story and why they love the new space.
