Riverside Leadership Endowment

Oct 19, 2015

The Department of Health Administration is delighted to announce the creation of the Riverside Leadership Endowment with a generous gift from Riverside Health System. The endowment, which will provide support to the MHA program director, was initiated by Bill Downey (MHA ’85), President of the Newport News-based health system to thank the program for its outstanding success in developing health care leaders.  Riverside has been led by an MCV/MHA alum for the past 50 years and has been a longtime supporter of the Department through student internships and residencies.  Nearly 20 Department alumni presently work in the Riverside system.  The Riverside Leadership Endowment will help the Department continue to improve our students’ experience while in the program, and increase their contributions to the health care field.
