Three of the top executives at Essentia Health have left the health system. Jeff Korsmo, Tracy Miland and Bob Brigham "are no longer with Essentia Health, effective immediately," spokeswoman Maureen Talarico confirmed in an email. "We thank them for their service to Essentia Health and wish them the best as they move on to pursue other opportunities." She could not provide details because their departure was a personnel matter, Talarico wrote.
