“Derall is uniquely qualified for the position of Director of the HFA department,” noted UHMS Executive Director John Peters. “His years of experience as an accreditation surveyor will benefit the department and the UHMS greatly.

“Tom has done a remarkable job preparing the position for Derall,” added Peters. “With assistance from Beth Hands, UHMS Accreditation Council Chair Dr. Brett Hart, and myself, Derall will have a dedicated support system as he comes up to speed.”

In addition, Tom Workman will provide an expanded department orientation beyond his December 31 retirement date.
