Mayo Clinic's chief administrative officer plans to retire


Shirley Weis, the vice president and chief administrative officer of Mayo Clinic, plans to retire at the end of the year, Twin Cities Business reports. Weis has spent four decades in the health care industry, 18 at the Rochester-based nonprofit health care system.

Mayo Clinic President and CEO John Noseworthy called Weis “an extraordinary leader,” adding that “she brought a keen business acumen to Mayo” along with “a commitment to both our patients and staff.”

"Our goal is to appoint a new CAO by early fall, so that the new CAO and Shirley will have time to transition together," Mayo spokesman Karl Oestreich told the Post Bulletin.
