The Sisters' Story of Saint Marys Hospital began like many good stories. Once upon a time, a group of Catholic Sisters and a family of doctors built a hospital in a cornfield. A handshake, not a legal document, sealed this partnership of Franciscan Sisters and Mayo physicians. The hospital grew into a place of healing for people from all over the world. The human story of these unlikely partners continues in The Sisters' Story, Part Two. Working together, they faced daunting challenges with unwavering dedication to a common purpose: the welfare of each patient. Today, Saint Mary s Hospital, together with Mayo Clinic, is indeed the miracle in a cornfield.
