Gov. Mark Dayton was scheduled to be at the Mayo Clinic Sesquicentennial celebration in Rochester Friday.



“Mayo Clinic has long represented the pinnacle of excellence in medical care,” Dayton said in a press release. “Over time, Mayo has grown from an enterprise of two committed and caring brothers into the finest medical institution in the world. Thanks to the wise investment made by our state legislature in the development of a Destination Medical Center, I am confident Mayo’s next 150 years in Minnesota will be just as remarkable as the last.”

Mayo Clinic is celebrating its 150th anniversary all year with a variety of events that will run through December.
