Mayo tries to keep up with its health care rivals

As Rochester-based Mayo Clinic seeks $585 million in public money to support its $5 billion expansion plan over the next 20 years, Mayo's top medical competitors are also spending hundreds of millions of dollars on new developments.

Minnesota Public Radio highlights some of the projects, including Cleveland Clinic, which is building a $465 million facility scheduled to open in July. The one-million-square-foot campus is being funded by a quarter-cent sales tax.

Johns Hopkins also built a $1 billion hospital in Baltimore last year with the state of Maryland contributing $100 million.

However, if Minnesota lawmakers approve Mayo's proposal, the taxpayer money would go towards improving Rochester's infrastructure, not the clinic directly.
