David Hall, a Knoxville native and longtime leader at The University of Tennessee Medical Center, is being promoted to executive vice president, according to the medical center’s CEO. Hall, who currently serves as senior vice president and chief operating officer, will assume the responsibilities of the newly created position on Sept. 1.
“The medical center has grown rapidly throughout the past decade, in terms of patient volumes, medical advances, and the size of our team,” said Joe Landsman, president and CEO of The University of Tennessee Medical Center. “David has been instrumental in helping us achieve much of that success and is the perfect individual to take on the added responsibility of guiding our organization to meet future growth needs and adapt for changes in the healthcare industry.”
Landsman cites numerous changes in recent years as well as proposed changes in the structure of healthcare industry as key needs for the creation of the executive vice president role. In the new position, Landsman says, Hall will continue to manage day to day operations at the medical center, focusing on efficiency and effectiveness, and will additionally be responsible for continuous comprehensive analysis of the medical center’s systems and processes. He will be tasked with ensuring that the organization is appropriately aligned in order to evolve to meet the growing needs of the community as well as the healthcare industry.
“The team members and physicians at the medical center are the brightest and most talented and compassionate people I’ve ever met and I’m excited to have the opportunity to continue to work with them in this new capacity,” said Hall. “As a native of East Tennessee, I’m looking forward to helping with the continued advancement of the organization on behalf of the community and region.”
Hall joined the medical center in 1994 and worked his way up in the organization through the years. At one point, he served as executive director of the independent physician’s group associated with the medical center, University Physicians’ Association, and was vice president of the Heart Lung Vascular Institute at UT Medical Center prior to his promotion to senior vice president and chief operating officer.
Hall holds a master of business administration from Bristol University and a bachelor of science in accounting from the University of Tennessee. Hall and his wife, Ann, live in Lenoir City and have two adult children. An avid outdoorsman, Hall raises Tennessee Walking Horses, enjoys kayaking, and is a dedicated member and immediate past president of the Knoxville Volunteer Rotary Club.
