Theodore Strange, MD, was appointed as Northwell Health’s vice chair of primary care in March 2016, a new role in which he is responsible for developing a primary care network in Northwell’s Southwest Region. He also helps manage primary care services and establish new clinical programs system-wide.

Dr. Strange has been a private practitioner since 1988 and has been a proven leader at Staten Island University Hospital for more than 30 years, most recently serving as associate chair of medicine. He’s been a member of New York State’s Public Health and Planning Council since 2011.

As executive director and cofounder of University Physicians Group (UPG), Dr. Strange oversaw a group of 50 physicians specializing in primary care medicine at 25 locations throughout Staten Island and Brooklyn. Dr. Strange integrated UPG into Northwell Health Physician Partners, adding talented physicians to Northwell’s expanding medical group.

He currently serves as the hospital’s vice president of medical operations. He’s also a clinical associate professor of medicine at the State University Health Science Center in Brooklyn and has been published in peer-reviewed journals, such as the Archives of Internal Medicine and has lectured widely. 

In 2011, the New York State senate confirmed Governor Andrew Cuomo’s nomination of Dr. Strange as a member of the Public Health and Health Planning Council.
