Mayo's Operating Profits Climb 55%; CEO Talks Strategy
By Jake Anderson and Dale Kurschner
Mayo Clinic said it beat expectations in 2013, and CEO John Noseworthy, who recently spoke to Twin Cities Business about the future of health care, highlighted ongoing initiatives. “The strong commitment of our entire organization has allowed us to respond successfully to unprecedented change in health care,” Dr. Noseworthy said. “We have changed the very definition of Mayo Clinic and stayed true to our core mission and values.”
Context: As Mayo Clinic recognizes its Sesquicentennial year, the not-for-profit organization reached a record 63 million people in 2013. The strong performance was bolstered by successful implementation of new care delivery models — such as the Mayo Clinic Care Network — that provide knowledge to patients, physicians and consumers in traditional and new ways. “Expanding our reach is not a new goal for us,” says John Noseworthy, M.D., Mayo Clinic president and CEO. “In fact, as we consider our history, growth has been a constant for 150 years.”

No sitting at my desk. No sitting during meetings or meals or TV time. To help prepare for my 48-hour standoff, I consulted with a pioneer — the man who jump-started the anti-sitting movement: Dr. James Levine of the Mayo Clinic and Arizona State University, a world-renowned obesity expert and among the first to use a treadmill desk.
