Leon L. Haley Jr., MD, MHSA associate professor of emergency medicine at Emory University School of Medicine, has been appointed the new Emory School of Medicine Executive Associate Dean of Clinical Services for Grady Health System and Chief Medical Officer of the Emory Medical Care Foundation.
Haley will begin his new role on July 8, serving as the primary liaison between the Emory School of Medicine and the Grady Health System. In his new role, Haley will be responsible for executive oversight and the strategic vision and direction for Emory’s clinical, research and teaching practices at Grady.
“For the past 16 years, Dr. Haley has served the patients, families, physicians, staff and communities that rely upon the Grady Health System for clinical care, teaching, discovery and social support,” says Christian P. Larsen, MD, PhD, dean of the Emory School of Medicine and vice president for Health Center Integration.
“He has been a role model for scores of junior faculty, residents and students, and we have all benefited from his graceful and principled leadership in the Emergency Care Center. Fortunately, he will remain an active faculty member in the Department of Emergency Medicine and maintain a clinical practice at Grady.”
