Virtua Health President and CEO Dennis W. Pullin has been named to the American Hospital Association's Board of Trustees, the health care system announced. Pullin is one of six new members whose three-year term will begin on Jan. 1.

"I am honored to contribute to the AHA and its collective body of thought-leaders and change-seekers who truly want to elevate the health and well-being of all," Pullin said. "Together, we will enhance equity, enable system transformation, advance affordability, and help guide the nation through the ongoing effort to end COVID-19."

The Board of Trustees is the highest policy-making policy body of the AHA and has ultimate authority for the governance and management of its directions and finances.

Pullin has been at Virtua since 2017, after previously serving as president of MedStar Harbor Hospital and senior vice president of MedStar Health, according to the American Hospital Association.

Before leading MedStar Harbor, he was senior vice president and chief operating officer at MedStar Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C.

Pullin's extensive background includes many executive leadership positions in hospitals, academic medical centers, physician group practices and private industry. He was vice president of operations and business development at St. Luke's Episcopal Health System in Houston and vice president of acquisitions and development at Symbion Healthcare, Inc.

A fellow and past regent of the American College of Healthcare Executives, Pullin serves on the New Jersey Hospital Association Board of Trustees. He is a past chair of the American Hospital Association's Governance Council for Metropolitan Hospitals and a past member of the Maryland Hospital Association's Council on Legislative and Regulatory Policy.
