Mayo Clinic touts planned bio-research campus

The next big phase of Rochester's transformation is getting underway. A few years ago, Mayo Clinic initiated a 20-year plan called the Destination Medical Center... billions of dollars of economic development centered around a massive expansion of Mayo. It's such a big project that the DMC board compartmentalizes the work across six districts across downtown Rochester.

Wednesday, Mayo is starting the process of finding a developer to start building one of those districts. It's called Discovery Square. It will be a big bio-research campus that will more than double the footprint Mayo currently has in Rochester.

Tom Weber talked with Dr. John Noseworthy, President and CEO of Mayo Clinic.
