Dr. Jason Stacy will serve as Interim Vice President, Health and Wellbeing and Chief Health Officer effective immediately.
Stacy is a graduate of the Medical College of Wisconsin and is currently the Director of Sports Medicine and Physiotherapy for the Student Health Service. Prior to assuming this role in 2013, he was Director of the Sports Medicine Fellowship, Team Physician, and Associate Professor at the School of Medicine.
“My goal is to run the university’s health services through transparency, collaboration, trust and accountability,” said Stacy. “We are focused on improving the high quality, patient-centered care for which we are known. Meeting the current and evolving health needs of our students, faculty and staff will be inherent in everything we do. ”
Stacy will help guide the transition from undergraduate health care to university health care, expanding health and wellness options for all students, faculties and employees on Columbia campus starting July 1.
“We are fortunate to have someone of Jason’s skill and perseverance to take on this crucial role. We look forward to working with Jason and building University Health Services, ”said Ed Walton, executive vice president of administration and chief financial officer.
Stacy succeeds Deborah Beck, who left university earlier this month. A nationwide search is currently underway for a permanent head of the university health service.
