Tim Hill, vice chancellor for Regional Campuses at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, has recently taken on another role as chief operating officer of the UAMS Health System. Hill will also be continuing in his role as vice chancellor for regional campuses.

In 2015, he became vice chancellor for Regional Programs (now Regional Campuses). Before his tenure at UAMS, Hill spent decades in other senior health care management roles. He has been president and CEO of Arkansas Heart Hospital in Little Rock, North Arkansas Regional Medical Center in Harrison and Southwest Hospital in Little Rock. He has also worked for hospitals in Texas and Washington.

Hill has a bachelor’s degree in business finance and accounting from St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud, Minnesota.
