Northwell Names New Vice Chair
Theodore Strange, director and co-founder of University Physicians Group, is Northwell Health System's new vice chair of primary care, a role in which he will help develop the system's primary care network in Staten Island, Brooklyn and New Jersey, according to a press release from Northwell.
Strange last month integrated his group practice into Northwell Health, bringing Staten Island’s largest group of physicians practicing in internal medicine under Northwell's umbrella.
“With more and more care being delivered outside of the hospitals and in community- based settings, we continue to focus on expanding our primary care network and improving access to high-value, cost-effective, quality services,” Thomas McGinn, Northwell's chair of medicine, said in a press release.

WHO'S NEWS: Dr. Theodore Strange started last week as the new vice chair of primary care at Northwell Health. He will be charged with growing Northwell's primary care network in Brooklyn, Staten Island and New Jersey. He was previously executive director and co-founder of University Physicians Group, a 50-doctor practice with 25 Staten Island and Brooklyn locations. UPG signed an agreement with Northwell Health's medical group practice, Northwell Health Physician Partners, to be purchased on Aug. 1. UPG was founded by Drs. Strange and Vincent Calamia, and originally was part of Staten Island University Hospital until it was spun off in 2002 as a separate corporation.
