Cleveland Clinic

Tomislav Mihaljevic will become the next CEO of the Cleveland Clinic, replacing longtime CEO Toby Cosgrove on Jan. 1. Mihaljevic is a heart surgeon and currently serves as CEO of Cleveland Clinic's hospital in Abu Dhabi. Cosgrove also is a heart surgeon and will move into an "advisory role," the system said.

Why it matters: Cleveland Clinic is one of the most influential not-for-profit health systems in the country. It is known for its flagship medical center and top-ranked doctors in Ohio. But the system has ballooned into a profitable enterprise under Cosgrove with $8.5 billion of annual revenue and global operations — and with questions about its status as a not-for-profit, charitable organization.

Reminder: Cosgrove was an adviser on President Trump's now-disbanded Strategic and Policy Forum.

The U.S. economy grew at a 33.1% annualized pace in the third quarter, the Commerce Department said on Thursday.

The state of play: The record growth follows easing of the coronavirus-driven lockdowns that pushed the economy to the worst-ever contraction — but GDP still remains well below its pre-pandemic level.
