CHICAGO — Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton on Tuesday announced his four picks for the Destination Medical Center board that will guide the state’s $455 million public investment in the Mayo Clinic’s proposed $6 billion expansion and makeover of its hometown Rochester.
Dayton is responsible for four of the board’s eight appointments. They must be confirmed by the state Senate. “This monumental public-private partnership will create tens of thousands of new jobs in our state, and accomplish great things for the people of Minnesota,” Dayton said in announcing his appointments.
