Scott McCarver, MHA, Chief Operating Officer for Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital, has taken the position of Chief Operating Officer at Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital (VWCH).
There, McCarver will help not only with operations of the hospital but will also use his Vanderbilt experience to provide additional attention and resources to the growth and integration plans of VWCH in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center Health System. McCarver joined VUMC as vice president of Operations for VUAH in 2015. Prior to Vanderbilt, he was employed by Duke Regional Hospital.
VUMC assumed ownership of VWCH on Aug, 1, 2019, and continues to make sizable investments in the hospital and its people to ensure its continued growth and success. Within the past month the hospital received an upgrade to its electronic health record system to Epic and announced that a new LifeFlight critical care ambulance has been dedicated to the facility.
Jay Hinesley, President of VWCH, said, “I am delighted to have a person of Scott’s caliber join our team at VWCH. I anticipate he will assist us to move our plans forward even more rapidly at this crucial time in the hospital’s development and integration.”
McCarver said, “While I have enjoyed my work at Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital, I am looking forward to joining the team at VWCH. This is an exciting time of growth in this community and a time for connecting with VUMC in a way that allows us to continue to provide the very best care in Wilson County.”
Jim Hayman, MS, MBA, who has served as Chief Pharmacy Officer for Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital and Clinics for the past 12 years, will serve as the hospital’s interim Chief Operating Officer.
“We appreciate Scott’s leadership and many contributions over the past five years,” said Shon Dwyer, MBA, RN, President of Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital. “Jim is already a vital member of the adult hospital leadership team, has a deep knowledge of operations and has strong working relationships with faculty and staff. He will ensure a smooth transition.”
Hayman’s extensive background includes leadership positions in both pharmacy and hospital administration for health systems in Indiana and Mississippi. Perhaps most notable is his 20-plus-year tenure at Parkland Health & Hospital System in Dallas. There, he served in senior leadership roles in pharmacy, pathology and radiology as well as professional services and clinical support.
“Scott’s meaningful contributions will benefit Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital for years to come,” said C. Wright Pinson, MBA, MD, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Chief Health System Officer for VUMC. “We look forward to his important contributions at our newest hospital, Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital.
“Let me add, Jim Hayman is a collaborative and well-respected colleague. Working with Shon and the leadership team, I have no doubt that he will help continue to propel the adult enterprise forward.”
