An exit interview with Mayo Clinic's CEO

Dr. John Noseworthy retires from the top post at Mayo Clinic this month after setting some major changes in motion.

Noseworthy has been Mayo's president and CEO since 2009. During his tenure, he helped seal the deal on the so-called Destination Medical Center — a $5.6 billion project to expand Mayo and redevelop large parts of the city of Rochester. It's also been an era of turbulence for the health care and health insurance industries. Mayo operates as a global powerhouse, with medical campuses in Florida, Arizona, but also as a regional provider with clinics in rural Minnesota.

Noseworthy spoke with MPR News host Angela Davis about his time leading the clinic and about Mayo's role in the future of medical care in Minnesota — and around the world.
