Health system trustees approved a plan that allows Dr. John Noseworthy to oversee the Rochester operations starting Sept. 8. Then on Nov. 20, Noseworthy will succeed Mayo President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Denis Cortese.

Mayo announced in May that Noseworthy, a neurologist and the medical director of Mayo’s Department of Development, would succeed Cortese, who had planned since February to retire this year.

Current Rochester campus CEO, Dr. Glenn Forbes, will remain with the system as director for external public affairs, where he will oversee collaboration between Mayo and the Rochester community, interaction with Minnesota’s state government, and the development of a global radiology network, according to a Mayo press release.
