Josh Plauny: Marine Corps to VCU Health — serving vulnerable people through supply logistics

Josh Plauny, senior director, Supply Chain for VCU Health, joined the U. S. Marines directly out of high school. “Ironically, my military occupational specialty was supply logistics. As a corporal, a noncommissioned officer, my role was to ensure our battalion had all supplies and equipment necessary for warfighting,” said Josh.
The Marine Corps had the greatest impact on Josh. “I’m humbled to have had the pleasure of serving my country and joining the life-long brotherhood that is the U.S. Marine Corps. Being a veteran, to me, is continuing the Marine brotherhood and living my life in-keeping with principles that I learned in the Marines.”

About a year after being honorably discharged from the Marines, Josh applied to VCU Health’s interim staffing pool for administrative positions. He was placed as interim administrative assistant for the chief nursing officer. “I absolutely fell in love with the hospital environment and operations. I’ve held several roles during my 16 years with VCU Health System. Today, I have the pleasure of serving as the executive responsible for VCU Health System’s supply chain.” Josh was and continues to be attracted to VCU Health because we take care of the most vulnerable patient populations and our people. “Serving our patients and team members who are in need gives me the greatest feeling imaginable.”
