Morrey also serves as the University’s chief health care strategist. In this role, he leads the Transformation and Strategy Office’s portfolio of initiatives focused on health and well-being, which span the pillars — People, Place and Pursuits — of UT’s strategic plan.

Before joining Mayo Clinic Health System, Morrey was lead administrator in Clinical Operations for six years. He was instrumental in formulating Mayo’s enterprise Office of Access Management, including organization and governance, management structure, and analytical tool application. He also served as senior administrator for several Mayo operational and strategic planning groups, a role where he was instrumental in developing a framework for Mayo’s competitive marketing plan, practice analytics, and parameters for operational growth and efficiencies.
