ALBERT LEA and AUSTIN, Minn. — After serving in various administrative leadership roles for 25 years, Mark Ciota, M.D., will transition out of his current leadership role as CEO of Mayo Clinic Health System in Albert Lea and Austin.
"We are incredibly grateful for Dr. Ciota's extraordinary commitment to his patients and to the community for more than two decades," says Robert Albright Jr., D.O., regional vice president, Southeast Minnesota Region, Mayo Clinic Health System.
"When I started in 1995, we had 80 employees in Albert Lea," says Dr. Ciota. "We have grown to nearly 2,000 employees across our two campuses, have expanded and updated our facilities, and, most importantly, continually brought new services and improved care to our area patients."
Dr. Ciota will continue to serve in his leadership role until mid-summer to ensure a smooth transition for his successor. He also will maintain his practice as an orthopedic surgeon at Mayo Clinic Health System in Albert Lea and Austin.
