John Noseworthy, MD (CEO, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn.). The transition from former Mayo President and CEO Denis Cortese, MD, to Dr. Noseworthy has been under way for well over a year and will continue until Dr. Cortese steps down in November. Dr. Noseworthy comes to the helm during challenging times for Mayo. While patient numbers were stable, Mayo’s 2008 income from patient care fell by almost a third and fundraising proceeds were down. “The role of the president and CEO of Mayo Clinic is critical to this institution in uniting Mayo Clinic in its vision and strategic direction,” said Jim Barksdale, chair of Mayo’s board of trustees. Dr. Noseworthy, a neurologist, has been the medical director of the Mayo Clinic Department of Development, a consultant in the clinic’s Department of Neurology and professor of neurology in Mayo’s College of Medicine.
