Having been with UHS since 1999, prior to being named CEO, Landsman served as the system’s Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President.
As the region’s only academic medical center, Magnet® recognized hospital and Level 1 Trauma Center, UTMC serves as a major referral center for East Tennessee, Southeast Kentucky and Western North Carolina.
UTMC has a three-fold mission of healing, education and discovery. Under Landsman’s leadership, UTMC has earned recognitions and awards nationwide – including honors from U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, The Joint Commission, Becker’s Hospital Review, Tennessee Center for Performance Excellence, and BlueCross BlueShield, among others – for its commitment to excellence and medical care.
Landsman credits UTMC’s physicians and team members for their commitment in collaboratively providing excellent patient-centric care and remaining at the forefront of research, technology and treatments.
“Being a healthcare provider…it’s a hard lifestyle and it’s a commitment to serve,” explains Landsman. “I could not value our team members more than I do, and our physicians. They really are a group of individuals that collectively care about the work they do.”
