LA CROSSE, Wis. ― Eric Erickson, vice chair, Administration at Mayo Clinic Health System in Southwest Wisconsin, will retire on Nov. 3. Erickson joined Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, in 1999 as part of the Revenue Recognition team. In 2001, he transferred to Arizona, eventually serving as the administrator of Collaborative Alliances and Campus Development position. Erickson was hired in La Crosse in 2012 as vice president of Primary Care. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Erickson was the primary incident commander for Mayo Clinic Health System in Southwest Wisconsin, which propelled him to become a trusted COVID-19 resource throughout Southwest Wisconsin. Most recently, Erickson has led the new hospital project teams, where he has worked collaboratively with staff to ensure the new La Crosse hospital meets the needs of patients, staff and the community for years to come. Erickson also has been deeply involved in the La Crosse community, serving on numerous boards, including Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater La Crosse, United Way, La Crosse Symphony Orchestra and others. “I have been fortunate to have been involved in numerous strategic initiatives, but, most importantly, I have had countless opportunities to work with inspirational people,” says Erickson. A transition plan is being developed, with the goal of working with Erickson to ensure a smooth transition of duties. “Eric has been a strong Southwest Wisconsin leadership team partner and an incredible asset to Mayo Clinic, the Southwest Wisconsin region and our patients,” says Tanner Holst, regional chair of Administration. “We sincerely thank Eric for his outstanding contributions to Mayo Clinic and wish him the best as he embarks on retirement.”
