COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

St. Francis Hospital in Columbus is now the first medical organization in Georgia to join the Mayo Clinic care network.

The hospital says they will continue to be independently owned and operated, but will benefit from the Mayo Clinic's knowledge and expertise.

The southeastern medical director of the clinic tells News Leader 9 why they picked St. Francis.

"They have core mission, they have core values… compassionate care to the community," said Dr. Stephen Lang, Ph.D.

The process of joining the network required St. Francis to undergo thorough evaluation based on quality, service and operational criteria.
