Mayo Services

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester may be providing medical examiner services to Winona County in the future.

County Board members heard from Mayo's Dr. Ross Reichert  who said Mayo already provides medical examiner services to five other area counties and has the capacity to take on Winona County as well.

County Attorney Karin Sonneman said the county has been working on the idea for two years which is something that she says will provide an overall savings to the county.

Under the plan current County Coroner Dr. Thomas Rettzinger would continue helping out in local death investigations until he retires having served the county for 29 years.

The plan is expected to be back at a future meeting for a vote.....
