Martha Jefferson Hospital President to Retire

August 25, 2014

The president of Martha Jefferson Hospital announced he will retire this fall. Jim Haden has worked at the Charlottesville area hospital for 21 years.

According to a news release from Martha Jefferson, during Haden's time as president, the hospital has enhanced its cancer services, was designated as a Magnet facility for excellence in nursing, opened new outpatient care centers and moved to a new facility in Albemarle County.

"Martha Jefferson Hospital is a special place, and what I cherish the most about our hospital is the Caring Tradition culture," said Haden. "Thanks to the dedication of all those involved, I am confident the culture will continue through the years.”

A hospital spokeswoman says the search for Haden's successor has already begun. A new president is expected to be named this fall.
