Knoxville-based University of Tennessee Medical Center Senior Vice President and CMO Jerry Epps, MD, is retiring, effective April 15.

Dr. Epps has worked at the hospital for 32 years, joining in 1987 as an anesthesiologist. He has served in several leadership roles at the hospital, including chair of the anesthesiology department and chief of staff.
