Arthur Kellermann

Welcoming a New Partner in Improving Health

The MCV Foundation is delighted to learn who our newest passionate and committed partner is in continuing our more than 70-year mission to inspire and steward philanthropic support for VCU Health.

In July, Virginia Commonwealth University and VCU Health System announced that Arthur L. Kellermann, M.D., will serve as senior vice president for health sciences at VCU and CEO of VCU Health System, effective Oct. 1.

“We look forward to working with Dr. Kellermann because we know he is motivated by the same goals as our donors and the things that make the MCV Campus at VCU Health great,” said Margaret Ann Bollmeier, president of MCV Foundation. “A passionate leader in this position who recognizes the power of philanthropy can help us inspire generosity that touches, changes and saves countless lives.”

Dr. Kellermann’s leadership on the MCV Campus and at satellite locations around the state will integrate seamlessly with the MCV Foundation’s work in providing scholarships, professorships and funds for research and lifesaving patient care at the VCU Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy; College of Health Professions; VCU Health System; and Massey Cancer Center.

The MCV Foundation supports these MCV Campus partners at VCU Health in achieving their fundraising goals, communicating their messages and achievements, and stewarding the funds they’ve raised. As an independent entity, we collaborate with the schools, care and research centers that will be under Dr. Kellermann’s guidance to ensure that the impact of every invested dollar is maximized to improve the health of people in Central Virginia and beyond.

“I am drawn to VCU because of its commitment to the community, the commonwealth and our country. It is an institution that is open to all and plays a pivotal role in the delivery of healthcare with unique and critical services,” said Dr. Kellermann in a statement from VCU. “I am excited to work with the high caliber of students, staff and faculty at the university and its health system — people who strive to make a difference. Given the breadth of talent across the university and its health system, the potential for VCU to advance health and healthcare is limitless.”

We at the MCV Foundation look forward to working with Dr. Kellermann every day in pursuit of that potential. To learn more about our history in support of the MCV Campus and how we work with VCU Health today, visit our About page.
