Driving directions to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota depend heavily upon the driver's starting location. To find directions from a specific location, drivers should go to the Clinic's homepage and click on Visitor Guide, then Driving Directions. From that page, the site provides a directions tool that allows drivers to input their starting location and acquire step-by-step directions from any geographical location.
To use the directions tool, drivers must at least have a starting city and state to input into the Starting Location field. The directions generated also include a map in a printable format, as well as alternate routes. Drivers have the option to select routes that exclude highways, avoid traffic and construction or include the fewest tolls. The tool also estimates travel time.
In addition to the detailed driving directions, individuals also have access to the Clinic maps, parking directions and individualized hotel directions, all from the Visitor Guide page. Directions and maps are all printable and available for download to smartphones and computers.
For drivers and patients who need more specialized travel assistance, the Mayo Clinic also provides Patient Travel Services, including shuttles, limousine services and car rentals. These services are fee-based, and are described in detail on the Patient Travel Services page, accessed from the Driving Directions page at the bottom right.
