Another Mayo Clinic Florida leader leaving
Mayo Clinic Floridais seeing its second member of the senior leadership team leave in as many months.
Chief Administrative Officer Bob Brighamwill be leaving his post at the end of the year to take a position at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, a spokesperson with Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville has confirmed with the Jacksonville Business Journal.
In August, president and CEO Bill Rupp announced he would retire at the end of December as well.
Brigham, who has served in various roles within the Mayo institution during the past 36 years, has been CAO for the Jacksonville facility for nine years, the Business Journal says.
During his tenure, he oversaw the expansion of Mayo Clinic's presence across the Northeast Florida region, most recently with an $80 million capital improvement of the hospital off San Pablo Road, which added two floors and 90 beds last year, the journal says.
Mayo Clinic Florida also has opened up several primary-care centers throughout the region, including those on the city's Southside, Jacksonville Beach and St. Augustine.
MD Anderson, which is part of the University of Texas system, is a national leader in cancer care.
