Traveling Alone to Mayo Clinic Jacksonville

Posted by Angela Marie @amrred, Jul 13, 2021

I saw there are resources for assistance in Rochester for patients traveling alone, does anyone have those resources for Jacksonville? I am having surgery in August and need assistance getting my bag from the hotel to my hospital room, and also someone to accompany me at discharge. Many Thanks for all help!

Have you checked Airbnb?

wizbanger73, I think @lmindela may be able to assist with your question about camping places or long term rentals at Mayo Clinic Jacksonville.
May I ask what treatment you're going for? Are you concerned about spending the holiday season away from home?
