As the first woman of color in the Mayo Clinic’s C-suite, Varkey has implemented programs at the health system’s community branch to improve the retention of diverse employees and increase the promotion of staff of color to management and leadership positions. She has also strongly focused on addressing gaps in medical access and investing in population health initiatives. Since she assumed her role in 2021, Mayo Clinic Health System has seen a significant increase in its quality rankings.
