UMMC bids adieu to first chief medical officer

Dr. William H. Cleland, right, who will retire Aug. 31, receives a wristwatch from Dr. James Keeton, vice chancellor for health affairs and dean of the School of Medicine, during an Aug. 14 reception honoring his years of service at UMMC.

Cleland, who earned his MD and did his residency at the Medical Center, returned to work at UMMC in 2003. A professor of obstetrics and gynecology, he became UMMC’s first chief medical officer five years ago.

His plans during retirement include visiting his new grandchild and spending time with his family at his second residence on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

“It’s been a pleasure. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it,” he said of his time at UMMC. “And I would be remiss if I didn’t thank Dr. Keeton for his guidance and support in my work.”
