Dear colleagues,

The School of Medicine is fortunate to have a dedicated operations team working hard every day to ensure all of our needs are met -- from building maintenance, safety and security, to shipping and receiving, just to name a few.

They do not wear white coats, but they wear many hats. Whether you’re faculty, student or staff, we couldn’t do our jobs if they didn’t do theirs so well. If you haven’t interacted with them yet, I’m sure you will. So, let’s take a moment to introduce you to our team members:

Mike Greer
(Operations Manager)

Ebony King
(Operations Coordinator)

Travis Atkins
(Operations Coordinator)

Dave Jeter
(Assistant Building Manager)

Here is some valuable contact information:

  • For Shipping and receiving questions, please reach out to Travis and Ebony at the Sanger Hall dock/operations office: 804-828-9836.
  • For maintenance, safety and security concerns Mike or Dave can be reached at the following operations cell numbers, Mike 804-904-7506, Dave 804-750-4027.
  • In addition to contact by phone, SOM OPS can be reached via email at: A team member will respond promptly.
  • If a building related emergency occurs after hours or on weekend, please call the VCU Operations Center, 804-828-9444.

In closing, I’d like to thank the members of this essential team for its role in keeping all at the School of Medicine running and performing at a high-level. It takes all of us.

With gratitude,

Arturo P. Saavedra, M.D., Ph.D.
