 Ginny Creasman was appointed Director of the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System in February 2021.

Creasman previously served as the director of the Aleda E. Lutz VA Medical Center in Saginaw since her appointment in July 2016. During that time, Creasman, who has worked with the VA for more than 25 years, managed VA facilities located from mid-Michigan to the Mackinac Bridge, providing healthcare to nearly 35,000 veterans with an operating budget of more than $184 million.

Prior to working in Saginaw, Creasman served as the associate director of the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center in Indianapolis, where she led administrative operations.

Creasman’s appointment also marks a return to Southeast Michigan. She previously was the assistant director at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System and served as a member of the Detroit leadership team for the 2012 National Veterans Conference. She has also led as the chief of pharmacy service at the Cincinnati VAMC.

Creasman oversees delivery of health care to more than 69,000 Veterans and an operating budget of over $500 million.

“VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System will continue to be the benchmark of excellence and value in healthcare and benefits by providing exemplary services that are both patient centered and evidence based,” said Robert McDivitt, the director of the Acting Veterans Integrated Service Network 10. “This care is delivered by engaged, collaborative teams in an integrated environment that supports learning, discovery and continuous improvement. I have full confidence Dr. Creasman will provide the sound leadership required to further Ann Arbor’s mission to deliver world-class, Veteran-centric care.”

Over the course of her career, Creasman has served in many leadership roles at the national, VISN and medical center levels, focusing on promoting Veteran-centered services and improving Veteran health care. Creasman has a Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Kentucky and is board-certified.

U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Dingell said Creasman will provide the leadership necessary to advance the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System’s mission.

“Dr. Creasman comes to us with decades of health care experience, most recently as the Medical Center Director at the Aleda E. Lutz VA Medical Center in Saginaw,” Dingell said in a statment. “I look forward to working with her to ensure we are providing the best possible care to veterans in southeast Michigan.”
