We are pleased to announce that Melissa Whisler, MBA, MHA, who has served as the Stead Family Department of Pediatric Clinical Department Administrator for the last four years, has been promoted to Administrative Chief of Staff at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics. In her new role, she will be working closely with all departmental executive officers to implement strategic plans and will oversee operations in the Office of the CEO. While her last day in the Stead Family Department of Pediatrics will be Tuesday, June 11, there will be a longer transition period in place to ensure the process is as seamless as possible.
In the interim, John Heinemann, MHA, MPH, will be serving as our Clinical Department Administrator. He joined UI Health Care in 2017 as an associate administrator and has previous administrator experience in various hospital and health care settings. He will oversee the day-to-day operations in pediatrics and ensure the continuation of our projects and strategic priorities.
Please join us in congratulating Melissa and John on their new roles.
