Englewood, NJ (January 11, 2018) — Englewood Hospital and Medical Center has appointed Stephen Brunnquell, MD, president of its physician network and Hillary Cohen, MD, vice president of medical affairs.
Dr. Brunnquell’s position has been created in response to a shifting healthcare model in which hospitals are partnering with physician practices to provide care to the community. In his new position, Dr. Brunnquell will serve as the liaison between providers and MDPartners, the physician network of Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, which, in less than 6 years, has grown to become a $100 million enterprise comprising close to 400 providers with 75 locations in 6 counties. For Dr. Brunnquell, who will step down from his current position of vice president of medical affairs at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, the decision was easy. “I am humbled to take on this role and to help continue to shape and grow this great group of doctors,” says Dr. Brunnquell. “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.”
Dr. Cohen, who is currently chief of emergency medicine, has been selected to take on the role of vice president of medical affairs following the transition of Dr. Brunnquell. In her new role, Dr. Cohen will serve as a linkage between the medical staff and executive leadership of the hospital, with particular emphasis on population health and projects related to clinical care and efficiency throughout the continuum. Dr. Cohen will also serve as medical director of Englewood Hospital and Medical Center’s clinically integrated network. “As Englewood Hospital and Medical Center continues to grow and expand services beyond the walls of the hospital, it’s important that high-quality care remains at the forefront,” says Dr. Cohen. “It’s an honor to assume this position and work with our medical staff to continue to enhance our services across our organization.”
“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,” says 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.”
