Solo in Rochester: Shuttle services between buildings

Posted by suzanne2 @suzanne2, Mon, Jun 22 4:49pm

I will be traveling to Rochester July 6 for a full week of appointments. Not my first time but my days are loaded and I will be looking forward to my hotel room at night. Just wondering if anyone can tell me how far it is to the FM/CFS building from Gonda building. Also is there any transportation between Gonda and St Mary’s .

Not sure what FM/CFS is. But here is some info on other questions:

There is a free patient shuttle from Mayo downtown campus to St Mary's, It picks people up at Gonda lobby.

The following link has links to maps of Mayo campuses.

Thanks! FM is fibromyalgia and CFS is chronic fatigue syndrome. I know they are in a separate building from Gonda. Last Fall I was fortunate to have my appointments in Gonda. This trip is different.

Thanks for the info! The building I have to go to is the Dan Abrams. Then a sedated MRI at St Mary's. I am going to take your advice and give them a call.

If look at campus map, Dan Abrams is about 3 blocks from Gonda lobby. It is connected via the subway system. Depending on your ability to walk you might ask if the patient shuttle to St Mary's can pick you up at Dan Abrams building. The concierge desk should be able to tell you if that is an option.

Hello @suzanne2, just want to wish safe travels. If you are experiencing mobility issues to walk that three blocks from Gonda to Dan Abraham, we have escort services who will push you in a regular or electric powered wheelchair. You can request for an escort at any point during your appointment. Just let the the nursing team on your floor know that you would like an escort for your next appointment and one will be provided.
