Jane Henney, senior vice president and provost for health affairs at the University of Cincinnati Academic
Health Center, said she will step down when her contract expires June 30, 2008. Henney,
60, told employees in a Sept. 7 e-mail that said she opted to step down after it became clear
to me that the vision and management philosophy used to guide the Academic Health Center
held by the UC Board of Trustees and the president is substantially different than the one
I was recruited to pursue in 2003.
Henney, who is expected to join the universitys College of Medicine faculty after her
tenure ends, wrote that the health centers successes during her four-year tenure have not
fully been able to resolve the difficult budgetary environment the university faces nor
the challenge of the changing clinical environment in our community. In a memo to
university deans and directors, University of Cincinnati President Nancy Zimpher credited
Henney for leaving the health center well-positioned for future success. -- by href="mailto:[email protected]">Melanie Evans
