With more than 30 years of hospital leadership experience, VCU Medical Center has named Jim Willis as its chief operating officer (COO).

During his time as the interim COO, Willis led the hospital’s Violence Prevention and Safety Task Force and helped to successfully implement new safety measures across VCU Health. Willis will continue to collaborate with team members in this leadership role, ensuring they have the support systems in place to provide the best quality care to our patients.
