ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Big names in Minnesota business and politics have been named to a governing authority that will oversee Mayo Clinic’s ambitious Destination Medical Center expansion.
Gov. Mark Dayton made four picks to the eight-member board on Tuesday. They are: his chief of staff Tina Smith, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, former Wells Fargo and Co. chief James Campbell and Rani Engineering president Susan Rani. Meanwhile, Mayo has designated ex-Medtronic chief executive Bill George as its representative on the panel.
The board of the nonprofit corporation is responsible for adopting the development plan that will guide the multi-billion expansion being aided by a significant public subsidy.
The newly named members join Rochester’s mayor, the city council president and an Olmsted County board designee.
Board members aren’t paid but are eligible for expense allowances.
