Charles Bodden has been named UVA Health's senior director for talent acquisition and retention, effective Sept. 27. The role is the first of its kind for the Charlottesville, Va.-based health system.

"UVA Health continues to compete for talent in a very challenging environment. National staffing shortages are having an impact on our local recruiting efforts, resulting in the need for an innovative leader to help UVA Health attract the talent necessary to build a strong workforce that continues to faithfully support our patients and our community," said K. Craig Kent, MD, UVA Health's CEO. "Charles is a creative problem solver and an inspiring team leader whose unique talents will bolster the health system during this demanding time where everyone in healthcare faces significant staffing shortages."

Mr. Bodden currently serves as talent acquisition manager for the clinical team at Indiana University Health in Indianapolis. He previously served for more than a decade at Humana in various roles, including talent acquisition manager for its pharmacy business groups, a Sept. 9 news release said. 

"Partnering with diversity and inclusion teams to recruit underrepresented candidates is a passion for me," Mr. Bodden said. "I am looking forward to working with the teams at UVA Health to reach a more diverse applicant pool, resulting in a more vibrant workforce community and increased cultural competence, both of which are fundamental to the mission of UVA's health system."
