Mayo has estimated that the project could create 35,00 to 45,000 jobs, including thousands of construction jobs and up to 16,000 jobs at Mayo itself.

Mayo and its hometown are so closely knit that it’s sometimes hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. Almost everyone in town works for Mayo or knows someone who does. Mayo patients and their family are everywhere, strolling the skywalk, patronizing hotels and restaurants.

Rochester Mayor Ardell Brede said his town and Mayo go together like a horse and carriage. “You can’t have one without the other,” he said. “I expect this relationship and partnership to become even stronger during the next many decades.”
