Brede: Noseworthy was the right Mayo leader for the times

By Kelley Luckstein


Just like Rochester’s history is intricately intertwined with Mayo Clinic’s, Mayo CEO and President Dr. John Noseworthy and the city have worked together with the support of our community to help put Mayo Clinic and Rochester on a dynamic path for the future. With the announcement of Dr. Noseworthy’s retirement last week, I wanted to share some reflections on our shared time as leaders in defining Rochester’s future. From my perspective, Dr. Noseworthy’s mandate coming into the CEO’s office was unlike any shouldered by his predecessors. Gone were the days of, “If Mayo builds it, they will come.” Health care has become more competitive than ever. Dr. Noseworthy and his leadership Logo for Post-Bulletin newspaper

team also have had to navigate the shifting complexities of American health policy.

Reach: The Rochester Post-Bulletin is a daily newspaper that serves Rochester, Austin and its surrounding cities. The newspaper has a daily circulation of more than 30,000 and has more than 440,00 unique visitors to its website each month.

Context: This is in response to John Noseworthy, M.D., president and CEO, Mayo Clinic,announcing that he will serve another year at the request of the Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees. Dr. Noseworthy plans to retire from Mayo Clinic at the end of 2018. This decision comes after one of Mayo Clinic’s strongest years in terms of quality and safety; advancement in research, education and the clinical practice; and the completion of a $3.76 billion, eight-year philanthropic campaign. “I am honored that the Board of Trustees asked me to serve another year, through the end of 2018,” says Dr. Noseworthy. “2017 was an extraordinary year for Mayo Clinic, and I look forward to working with our leadership team throughout 2018 to continue to strengthen Mayo Clinic and advance our humanitarian mission. I am truly humbled to serve as president and CEO of this amazing and dynamic organization. Every day, I continue to be inspired by the work of Mayo’s staff and how they embody our shared values to care for our patients and advance the field of medicine.” You can read more about this announcement, including an interview with Dr. Noseworthy, on Mayo Clinic News Network.
