Ginny L. Creasman was appointed by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to serve as the Medical Center Director of VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System (VAAAHS) in Ann Arbor, Michigan, effective February 18, 2018.

Serving a 15-county area of Michigan and Northwest Ohio, VAAAHS provides world-class health care and services to the men and women who have proudly served our nation.

Over 69,000 Veterans choose VAAAHS to provide their health care.

Over the course of her career, Dr. Creasman has served in many leadership roles at the national, VISN and medical center levels, focusing on the promotion of Veteran-centered services and improving Veteran health care. She was a member of the Detroit leadership team for the 2012 National Veterans Conference and received a VA Secretary Commendation for enhancing services to Veterans through this effort. During her tenure as interim Medical Center Director at the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center, she fostered partnerships with the Indiana National Guard resulting in the activation of the Wakeman VA Clinic at Camp Atterbury. She also developed a memorandum of understanding with the YMCA for a prevention and wellness clinic, as well as ongoing initiatives for Veteran engagement in health and fitness. As a Medical Center Director, Dr. Creasman continues her efforts in creating and sustaining highly reliable organizations.

Dr. Creasman’s areas of interest include performance improvement, systems redesign, staff development and succession planning, governance and organizational realignment, and the integration of technology to improve direct patient care. Dr. Creasman is a passionate leader in engaging employees through leadership development and frontline problem solving; ultimately resulting in a positive Veteran experience.
