The president of Martha Jefferson Hospital, Jim Haden, will retire this fall. Haden is 67. He began working at Martha Jefferson in 1993. Haden (pictured) is credited with enhancing Martha Jefferson’s comprehensive cancer services, getting the hospital designated as a Magnet® facility for excellence in nursing, opening the Outpatient Care Centers at Pantops and Proffit Road, establishing a free-standing emergency department, recruiting numerous specialists from the nation’s top medical institutions, and achieving superior state and national patient satisfaction scores. The hospital board says Haden also was instrumental in the successful construction of, and move to, the new Martha Jefferson Hospital on Pantops Mountain as well as the successful merger with Sentara Healthcare. A new president will be appointed later in the fall.
