Carilion Clinic Announces Leadership Changes
Agee began her career in nursing at Carilion, serving in various management roles over the past 20 years. In 1996 she was appointed vice president medical education. In 2000 she became senior vice president of the organization, advancing to executive vice president/COO in 2001. At the beginning of 2011, Agee was appointed president/CEO of Carilion Medical Center.
"This is a unique organization, with truly remarkable people, and I am honored to have this opportunity," Agee said. "I still remember the faces of my patients back in 1973 and as I see our patients today I know that even with new technology, new facilities and a new medical school our core mission remains the same – providing high-quality, coordinated, compassionate care tailored to meet the individual needs of our patients every day."
Agee's successor as COO of Carilion Clinic has yet to be named.
