Englewood Hospital and Medical Center has appointed Dr. Stephen Brunnquell to president of its physician network, MDPartners, a new position, and Dr. Hillary Cohen to vice president of medical affairs.
Brunnquell will step down from his current role as vice president of medical affairs and in his new position, will serve as the liaison between providers and MDPartners, which has grown to become a $100 million enterprise with roughly 400 providers in 75 locations in six counties.
“As the industry continues to change, it is imperative that hospitals and health systems have a firm grasp on the issues, concerns, and happenings of their physicians — who better to understand and appreciate that than a physician,” Brunnquell said in a release.
Cohen is being promoted from chief of emergency medicine to replace Brunnquell. In her new position, she will serve as a link between the medical staff and the executive leadership of the hospital, with an emphasis on population health and projects related to clinical care.
“Dr. Brunnquell and Dr. Cohen have both brought invaluable expertise, leadership acumen and passion to their current roles, and we’re delighted to welcome them to these new leadership positions,” said Warren Geller, president and CEO of Englewood Hospital and Medical Center. “Having Dr. Brunnquell and Dr. Cohen in these new roles will be a great asset not only to our medical center, but the patients and communities we serve.”
