When Mayo Clinic’s departing national president and CEO Dr. Denis Cortese retires Nov. 20, he’ll leave Rochester — but he’ll rekindle an old partnership.
Mayo spokesman Karl Oestreich said Cortese will work in concert with former Mayo national chief administrative officer Bob Smoldt.
Together, they’ll lead the new Healthcare Delivery and Policy Program at Arizona State University. The program “will focus on health care delivery changes that result in higher value health care, as well as the role of public policy in delivery system reform,” Oestreich said.
