Mayo Clinic Expands London Clinic Offerings – Post Bulletin
LONDON – Mayo Clinic strengthens its healthcare offer at its base in England with a new cardiac imaging service.
Mayo Health Clinic opened in joint venture with Oxford University end of 2019. The Mayo Clinic became sole owner of the London clinic in 2020.
The clinic is located at 15 Portland Place in a historic six-story building across from the BBC head office in London’s high-profile Harley Street Medical Area. The Mayo Clinic describes the International Medical Center as “the UK‘s gateway” to Mayo Clinic in the United States.
The London site recently announced that it is adding 3D transesophageal echocardiography to its cardiac imaging offer. The process uses a thin scope to view a patient’s heart through their esophagus.
“Using transesophageal echo, we can confirm an initial diagnosis of heart valve disease or provide a useful second opinion to guide a patient’s next steps. When surgical repair or heart valve replacement is needed to regain a healthy blood flow, our Mayo Clinic Healthcare team consults with colleagues and interventional cardiology surgeons in the United States to provide patients with highly personalized recommendations,” said Mayo Clinic’s Dr. Gosia Wamil in the announcement of the new offer.
In the summer of 2021, Mayo Clinic added several medical specialties to its London site, including cardiology, gastroenterology and pulmonary medicine.
The Mayo Clinic isn’t the only major US healthcare institution claiming a concession in London. Competitor Mayo, Cleveland Clinic also has an outpatient clinic on Portland Place, one block from the Mayo Clinic site.
The Cleveland Clinic is also preparing to open its own London hospital in March. The 184-bed hospital occupies an eight-story building adorned with gargoyles near Buckingham Palace and numerous international embassies.
Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic also have international medical centers in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
