Distinguished emergency medicine physician has more than 30 years of experience in the field
(CONCORD, CALIFORNIA, USA) VEP Healthcare is pleased to announce the appointment of Sanford “Sandy” Herman, MD, to the positions of interim Chair of Emergency Medicine and Emergency Department (ED) Medical Director at Tennova Healthcare – Clarksville, Tennessee.
Dr. Herman is certified in emergency medicine by the American Association of Physician Specialties and has been a practicing emergency physician for more than 30 years. He previously has held ED medical director positions at other hospitals and is currently a VEP Regional Director.
Past president of the Tennessee chapter of the American College of Emergency Physicians earlier in this decade, Dr. Herman has an exceptional track record of leading improvements in ED quality and efficiency.
Dr. Herman replaces Mark Muiznieks, MD, who chose to step down from the ED medical director position after four years at the helm. Dr. Muiznieks served on many medical staff leadership committees during his tenure and was instrumental in assisting with the development and implementation of the new Tennova ER-Sango, the first freestanding ED in Clarksville. He will remain with VEP and continue to serve the community.
Says Dr. Herman, “I am very excited about this new opportunity to serve Tennova Healthcare and the people of Clarksville.”
Steven Maron, MD, President and CEO of VEP Healthcare, states, “Sandy has been a valued member of our team for many years. We have the utmost confidence that he will excel in this new position.”
