Clinic leaders were concerned about the managed care movement and other factors causing uncertainty about the future of health care. The institution entered new markets in Florida and Arizona. Mayo re-emphasized its commitment to patient care at the same time it devoted additional resources to medical education and research.

To protect referral patterns, it established outreach programs that sent cardiologists and specialized diagnostic technologies (such as echocardiography) to sites in surrounding counties.
