Jim first came to Pennsylvania Hospital in November 1, 1984, as the Assistant Director of Engineering. After about a year he transferred to the now-closed Institute of Pennsylvania Hospital to serve as Director of Engineering. Jim was back at PAH as Associate Director of Engineering when the Institute closed in 1995, and was promoted to Director in July of 2006.
Over the years Jim has been instrumental in overseeing numerous renovation and construction projects throughout the Hospital and its surrounding campus. He’s had an integral role in both helping to implement the Private Room Initiative and construction of our new outpatient facility, Penn Medicine Washington Square.
“For almost three decades Jim was a steady and stalwart presence through each “emergency” PAH has endured. He will be missed by all,” said Karla McCaney, vice president, Facilities Management.
