When the Destination Medical Center Corp. Board meets next, there will be a new face at the table. At Thursday's board meeting, the last of 2015, Board Member Bill George announced he would resign his duties.

The nonprofit DMCC Corp. and its board is in charge of public oversight of DMC initiatives and supervision of the DMC Economic Development Agency. Its eight board members were appointed by DMC partners: the governor of Minnesota, the Olmsted County Board of Commissions, Rochester City Council and Mayo Clinic.

George served two years as a Mayo Clinic appointee. He previously was chairman and CEO of Medtronic Corp., and a current Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees member. He also is a professor of management practice at Harvard Business School.

"I just wanted to thank you all for the opportunity to serve on this outstanding board for the last (two) years," George said Thursday as he phoned in to the DMCC Board meeting.

DMCC Board Chairwoman and Lt. Gov. Tina Smith thanks George for his service.


"We're so grateful for your service and so appreciative of the very specific contributions you've made while you've served us," Smith said.

Michael Dougherty will replace George as the Mayo Clinic appointee on the board. Dougherty is a Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees member, and founder and chairman of Dougherty Financial Group.

The DMCC Board meets next on March 24.
