A long-time admirer of Mayo Clinic is giving $200 million, Mayo’s largest gift ever, to its medical school.

Mayo Clinic announced the historic donation this morning from Birmingham, Mich., philanthropist Jay Alix. Alix, a corporate strategist, is credited with saving many companies, including General Motors in 2008, as well as overhauling the struggling City of Detroit. President Bill Clinton appointed him to the National Bankruptcy Review Commission.

Alix was also named to the Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees last week.
