As three of UF Health Jacksonville’s leaders retire, we reflect on their contributions to the organization. UF Health Jacksonville’s exemplary patient care, employee engagement and community service are the result, in large part, of its leaders. At the end of 2017, three of our senior leaders — Russ Armistead, CEO; Penny Thompson, vice president of Government Affairs; and Bill Ryan, senior vice president and chief financial officer — will say goodbye to UF Health and enter retirement. Each has dedicated years of their careers to stewarding our organization toward greatness, and they have made contributions that will positively impact patients and staff for years to come.

Hurricane Irma was no exception, as both emergency rooms met the storm with a solid plan and increased staff levels during and after the storm.
