    Judy Hayman is the new director of the Syracuse VA Medical Center, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

    Hayman will oversee delivery of health care to more than 52,000 veterans, an operating budget of $300 million and 1,700 employees at one of Upstate New York’s largest VA Medical Centers.

    “We are excited that Dr. Hayman has been appointed as the new director of the Syracuse VA Medical Center,” said Dr. Joan E. McInerney, Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) 2 director. “Her sound leadership qualities and proven experience will be valuable assets for the facility, the employees and volunteers, and most importantly, for the veterans we are honored to serve.”

    Hayman joined the VA more than 10 years ago and has held progressive leadership positions at the Syracuse center. Most recently, she served as the associate medical center director at the Syracuse VA and, since last April, has been the acting medical center director.

    Hayman holds a Doctor of Philosophy degree in clinical psychology from Fairleigh Dickinson University, Teaneck, N.J. She is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives and a graduate of the Health Care Leadership Development Program.

    The Syracuse VAMC is a 136-bed general medical and surgical referral center including a 16-bed acute care psychiatric unit as well as a 48-bed community living center and a spinal cord injury center.
