COLUMBUS — The Ohio Department of Veteran Services has named Terry Prince, a retired U.S. Navy Hospital corpsman, the new Superintendent of the Veterans Homes in Sandusky and Georgetown.
“We are excited to have Terry Prince part of our team,” Director Chip Tansill said. “Terry brings a senior level of healthcare experience to our homes after leading teams in the military regional healthcare systems, medical centers and hospitals.”
Prince began his military career in 1986, serving in the Dental Technician and Hospital Corpsman ratings. Over the years, Force Master Chief Prince was assigned to 14 different duty stations including service as the Command Master Chief of Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, and later, the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. Additionally, he was the senior enlisted advisor to the Defense Health Agency and finally, the Director of the U.S. Navy Hospital Corps and Force Master Chief of Navy Medicine.
“I am honored to be selected as superintendent and serve veterans, their families and our staff at the Ohio Veterans Homes with the full force and effort you would expect from a retired U.S. Navy Hospital corpsman.” Prince said. “There is no greater calling than to help others and my family and I are so excited to have this opportunity to do just that.”
