  • As CEO of one of America’s top five hospitals, Dr. Cosgrove knows what it takes for a health care facility to provide exceptional care for patients and create a culture where staff love to work.

  • Dr. Cosgrove’s extensive experience as a surgeon, educator and hospital administrator of one of America’s most innovative health care programs makes him an expert in new approaches to effectively managing affordable health care while providing empathetic patient care.

  • He is the author of more than 450 journal articles and The Cleveland Clinic Way, a 200-page book about the future of health care and the role the Cleveland Clinic plays in that.

At an age when most people are considering retirement, Dr. Delos "Toby" Cosgrove became president and CEO of the Cleveland Clinic when he was 63 years old.

As CEO, Dr. Cosgrove oversees an $8 billion health care system with locations across the United States and around the world. Under his leadership, the Cleveland Clinic became the first tuition-free medical center in the country. It also consistently has been named among America’s top five hospitals (U.S.News & World Report), and is one of two hospitals named among “America’s 99 Most Ethical Companies” (Ethisphere Institute). Before becoming CEO, Dr. Cosgrove established Cleveland Clinic Innovations, which has spun off nearly 60 companies that develop and sell new medical technology.

Dr. Cosgrove received his medical degree from the University of Virginia School of Medicine and completed his clinical training at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, and Brook General Hospital in London. His undergraduate degree is from Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts. After medical school, he was a surgeon in the U.S. Air Force and served in Da Nang, Vietnam, as the Chief of U.S. Air Force Casualty Staging Flight. He was awarded the Bronze Star and the Republic of Vietnam Commendation Medal.

He joined the Cleveland Clinic in 1975, and was named chairman of the Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular surgery in 1989. Under his leadership, the clinic’s heart program was ranked number one in America for 10 years in a row (U.S. News & World Report). He performed the first minimally invasive mitral valve surgery over a worldwide video network in 1996, a practice that is widely used today. Dr. Cosgrove holds 30 patents for products used during surgery. He has performed more than 22,000 operations and is considered an international expert in heart valve repair.

Dr. Cosgrove has published 450 journal articles, made 17 training and continuing medical education films, and published The Cleveland Clinic Way, a 200-page book about the future of health care and the role the Cleveland Clinic plays in that.

The recipient of Cleveland Clinic’s Master Clinician Award, Innovator of the Year Award, and Lerner Humanitarian Award, Dr. Cosgrove also is a member of Cleveland Medical Hall of Fame and Cleveland Business Hall of Fame. In 2007, he was named Cleveland Business Executive of the Year by the Sales and Marketing Executives of Cleveland, and Castle Connolly’s National Physician of the Year. He received the Woodrow Wilson Center Award for Public Service, as well as Harvard Business School’s Award from HBS Alumni, Cleveland, and the Humanitarian Award of the Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio. He is highly ranked among Modern Healthcare’s “100 most powerful people in health care” and “most powerful physician executives.

Dr. Delos Cosgrove is a different kind of physician. Although he likes to highlight the non-traditional and highly technological approaches of the famed Cleveland Clinic, where he is president and CEO, he emphasizes how none of that makes sense if there is no empathy for the patient and their family. As an extremely accomplished physician with numerous credits and awards to his name, Dr. Cosgrove has much to say about the future of medicine and where it’s headed—or needs to be headed.

The Cleveland Clinic Way: Lessons in Excellence from One of the World's Leading Health Care Organizations
There's a revolution in medicine right now. Doctors at the Cleveland Clinic have developed an approach for treating people that is more effective, more humane, and more affordable. Dr. Cosgrove reveals how the clinic works so well and argues persuasively for why it should be the model for the nation. In this presentation, he details how the Cleveland Clinic focuses on eight key trends that are shaping the future of medicine:

  • Why group practices provide better and cheaper care
  • Why collaborative medicine is more effective
  • How big data can be harnessed to improve quality of care and lower costs
  • How cooperative practices can be the wellspring of innovation
  • Why empathy is crucial to better patient outcomes
  • Why wellness of both mind and body depends on health care, not sick care
  • How care is best provided in different settings for greater comfort and value
  • How tailor-made care treats a person instead of a disease

    The Cleveland Clinic Way is a refreshingly positive and practical vision of health care, which is essential for any health care or business executive, medical professional, industry analyst, or policymaker to understand. Dr. Cosgrove gives leaders lessons they can apply in their own organization to achieve results, and empowers average Americans to make more informed health care decisions.
