Rochester General Health System has named a new chief medical officer.
Robert Mayo M.D. will replace outgoing chief medical officer Richard Gangemi M.D., who will retire at the end of this year.
Mayo joined RGHS in 2002. He has been president of the medical and dental staff of RGH and, since 2009, vice president and patient safety officer for the Institute of Patient Safety and Clinical Excellence. Mayo was named the health system’s first Physician of the Year in 2004.
“Dr. Mayo possesses that rare combination of sharp intellect, skill, heart and humility that not only make him an exceptional physician, but also a highly respected and admired colleague, leader, educator and role model,” said Mark Clement, president and CEO. “This selection showcases the ability of our system to nurture and grow world-class health care leaders that can emerge as top candidates among national contenders.”
