Franklin Cockerill Celebrates Groundbreaking Laboratory Design
Franklin Cockerill’s work with the Mayo Clinic exceeded all expectations, 12/30/2014 - Dr. Franklin Cockerill, a highly esteemed medical professional as well as former CEO and President of Mayo Collaborative Services and Chairman of their Laboratory Medicine and Pathological Department, has had a long career of accomplishments that serve as testament to his success in the medical field. One of his recent crown achievements happened in August of 2014, when the clinic decided to expand their laboratory space at their Rochester, MN location. Dr. Cockerill was chosen to spearhead the project, as it seemed right up his alley. A few years prior he had accepted the Frost and Sullivan Award in Boston for “Best Laboratory Business Plan” and was also awarded the Laboratory Public Service Award by G2 Reports.

With the help of Franklin Cockerill, the plan to expand The Superior Drive Support Center by nearly 70,000 square feet had been put into action. It involved a three-story addition to be placed near the southern end of the complex. The space is to be occupied by three labs that had been taking place in the Hilton building downtown. These are the toxicology, endocrinology and proteomic core labs; all of which amounted for nearly 160 employees to be shifted into the new building and join the 1,000 plus team at the main complex.

The expansion project came near the end of Franklin Cockerill’s time with the Mayo Clinic, however he is proud to have been a part of this crucial move in development. The new building will complete the home base for Mayo Medical Labs, which performs nearly 20 million tests per year for almost 4,000 client hospitals spread across the United States as well as several in other countries. Mayo Clinic, itself, had also recently grabbed the number one spot for the top 20 hospitals.

As Franklin Cockerill stepped away from MML in September of 2014, he reflects upon and celebrates the development of this building which will not only be pivotal to Mayo Clinic’s operations, but will benefit the medical community as a whole as it boosts the performance of the complex to the benefit of their client hospitals all over. It is an endeavor the seasoned doctor says he was proud to be a part of.
