VCU Medical Center names new president
Michael Roussos comes from University Hospital in San Antonio
Michael Roussos will be the next president of Richmond’s VCU Medical Center, starting in December, VCU Health System announced Wednesday.
Roussos was previously the lead administrator for University Hospital in San Antonio, where he led the hospital’s COVID-19 response. Roussos also aided in the hospital’s transition to Epic, an electronic medical records system that VCU Health System plans to implement later this year.
“Mike Roussos’ recruitment is the result of a highly competitive national search,” said Dr. Art Kellermann, senior vice president for VCU Health Sciences and CEO of VCU Health System, in a statement. “He understands the effort and commitment required to not only persevere but succeed in challenging circumstances.
Before joining University Hospital, Roussos worked at HCA Healthcare for 13 years, most recently serving as CEO of Mainland Medical Center in Texas. He holds a master of science degree in health care administration from Trinity University and a bachelor of science degree in kinesiology from The University of Texas at Austin.
Dr. Ron Clark, who has served as VCU Medical Center’s interim president since 2019, will continue to serve until December.
