The folks at Mayo are planning a new clinic in their home town.

As the Business Journal reports, Rochester-based Mayo announced Friday it will provide primary care services at a new clinic in a building under construction on the city's southeast side.

The Post Bulletin says word of a new clinic has been circulating for months but Mayo had not confirmed it until Friday.

Mayo says it will lease a building of more than 22,000 square feet that's under construction at the Shoppes on Maine development. Dr. David Agerter, the medical director of Mayo Clinic Employee and Community Health tells the Post Bulletin leasing space has worked well in other locations but would not discuss how much Mayo will pay for the new clinic.

In its statement announcing the plan, Mayo said employees and patients have requested more medical services in the southeastern part of Rochester.30 to 40 employees will work at the clinic, Mayo says.

Agerter called it part of a broader effort to make Mayo's services more accessible. "Mayo Clinic intends to offer additional ways for its Rochester area patients and employees to experience specialized care services in new convenient ways,” he says.

Of course, Mayo knows its way around Rochester. The world renown clinic started in the city and is marking its 150th anniversary this year.

Founder William Worrall Mayo settled in Rochester during the Civil War and was joined in his practice by his two sons during the 1880s. Find an overview of Mayo's history here.
