50 Most Influential Physician Executives – 2016
President and CEO, Mayo Clinic
Dr. John Noseworthy has been synonymous with Mayo Clinic since he took the helm at the world-renowned organization in 2009. But his relationship with Mayo dates to 1990, and he has played many roles over the years. A neurologist, he's held many clinical leadership posts, including chair of the neurology department, where he still holds the title of professor. He's well-respected in the specialty, especially for extensive research into multiple sclerosis. He also serves as editor-in-chief of the journal Neurology, which he has expanded in scope and frequency during his tenure. Mayo has continued expanding on and beyond its Rochester campus since Noseworthy took the helm, including the 2011 launch of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, which now has affiliate healthcare organizations across the country. Among his activities outside of Mayo, Noseworthy serves as a member of the healthcare governors for the Geneva, Switzerland-based World Economic Forum.
