JACKSONVILLE, Fla., and ROCHESTER, Minn. — The Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees has named Bobbie Gostout, M.D., vice president, Mayo Clinic. The announcement was made today at the Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees quarterly meeting.
Dr. Gostout will be the physician leader for Mayo’s community practice in the Midwest, including Mayo Clinic Health System in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin and Mayo Clinic’s Minnesota-based community care locations. She succeeds Rob Nesse, M.D., who, in July, became Mayo’s first senior medical director of Payment Reform, and Brian Whited, M.D., who has served since that time as interim physician leader. In her new role, Dr. Gostout, along with her administrative partner, Mark Koch, will lead the integration of Mayo’s specialty and community care practices in the Midwest, and guide the implementation of all aspects of Mayo’s strategic and operating plans.
Dr. Gostout will transition into her new role through the end of 2015. This will ensure a smooth leadership transition for Mayo’s community practice in the Midwest and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Rochester, Minnesota, where she has been department chair since 2007.
