Tue, Sep 17 3:15pm · Mayo Clinic remembers Cokie Roberts, Mayo trustee

Cokie Roberts dressed in a commencement gown

Pioneering journalist Cokie Roberts passed away Tuesday, Sept. 17 at the age of 75. Cokie joined the Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees in 2016. Here is a statement from Gianrico Farrugia, M.D., Mayo Clinic President and CEO.

“We are deeply saddened
by the news of the passing earlier today of our dear friend and Mayo Clinic
Board of Trustees member, Cokie Roberts. We are grateful we had the honor and pleasure
of working with Cokie. She exemplified integrity and compassion.

One of America’s pioneering female journalists, Cokie had a passion for history and deep admiration for the Sisters of Saint Francis. During her keynote speech at joint commencement of Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine and Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences in May, 2018, she said, ‘Oh yes, I know all about the marvelous Mayo brothers and their remarkable father … but if it hadn’t been for a pushy nun who wouldn’t take ‘No’ for an answer, Saint Marys Hospital would never have been built, and what became known as Mayo Clinic might not have ever existed.’

Many things will be written
and recalled in the coming days about Cokie’s remarkable career and amazing
life, but most importantly, great leaders leave their mark on humanity. We are
all better for having known Cokie.”

Tue, Jun 4 9:30am · Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation's $32 million gift advances Mayo Clinic research

Biomedical researcher in laboratory

ROCHESTER, Minn. — A generous $32 million gift from the New York-based Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation will enable Mayo Clinic to expand its research mission with the construction of a four-story, 64,000-square-foot research building in Rochester.

Planning for the Anna-Maria
and Stephen Kellen Building is underway, with groundbreaking expected in 2020
and occupancy in 2022. The building will be located just north of Mayo Clinic’s
Opus Building, which is on the corner of Fourth Street Southwest and Fourth
Avenue Southwest in Rochester.

“We cannot
overstate our gratitude to the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation,”
says Gianrico Farrugia, M.D., Mayo Clinic’s president and
CEO. “Research is critical to infusing new knowledge into patient care. It
paves the way to solve serious or complex medical challenges
for our patients at Mayo as well as patients around the world. This
remarkable gift will allow us to meet a critical need for research space on our
Rochester campus.”

The gift was
directed to Mayo Clinic by Michael M. Kellen, foundation president, and Marina
Kellen French, vice president. Their parents, Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen,
now deceased, received care at Mayo Clinic for decades, and that trust and care
have continued into the next three generations. Stephen M. Kellen was president
and CEO of Arnhold and S. Bleichroeder Inc., an international investment firm
based in New York, now known as First Eagle Investment Management LLC.

“Our family’s
history with Mayo Clinic spans more than four decades, and the physicians and
staff at Mayo have become like family to us,” says Marina Kellen French. “We are thrilled to be able to
support Mayo and be part of advancing medical research that will help patients
for decades to come.”

The Anna-Maria and
Stephen Kellen Foundation has been a significant contributor to Mayo Clinic over
many years, funding various initiatives and projects in support of Mayo Clinic’s
highest priorities. The foundation also has supported the Dr. Richard F.
Emslander Professorship at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine
and Science
in
recognition of the care that Richard Emslander, M.D., provided to the family
over many years.

“Medical
research has always been a strong interest of our family,” says Michael M.
Kellen. “We are pleased that this gift will address a high-priority need
at Mayo while honoring our parents’ legacy in a visible and meaningful
way.”

The Anna-Maria and
Stephen Kellen Building will add to the Discovery Square subdistrict in
downtown Rochester. Discovery Square is the research, innovation and
development hub of the $5.6 billion Destination Medical Center initiative.

Decisions regarding
specific use and occupancy of the new building will be made as part of the
planning process this year.
