Minot-based Trinity Health has become the newest member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network.
The partnership gives Trinity Health's doctors and other officials direct access to experts and resources at the Rochester-based Mayo Clinic. Officials say the goal is to strengthen the delivery and quality of health care.
The nonprofit Trinity Health system has more than 2,700 employees and serves western North Dakota and eastern Montana. The Mayo Clinic Care Network has member organizations in 10 states, Puerto Rico and Mexico. Altru Health System in Grand Forks and St. Alexius Medical Center in Bismarck also are members of the network.
