Former LSU health care administrator Dr. Roxane Townsend has landed a top job at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. She said she will become UofA Medical Sciences vice chancellor of clinical affairs and chief executive officer of its 434-bed medical center and teaching hospital effective Feb. 1. Townsend had been the LSU system's assistant vice president for health systems until Sept., when she was ousted during a shake-up in leadership in the system's hospital and medical education division. Townsend cited concerns over the direction of healthcare delivery in LA as having played a part in her decision to leave.
