Hospital Administration Transition

I have regretfully accepted the resignation of Mike H. Summerer, M.D., who has served as Chief Executive Officer of John Dempsey Hospital and Assistant Dean for Education since 2009. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Summerer for his years of service to the hospital, particularly his efforts to help improve patient safety. Dr. Summerer’s resignation is effective August 15.

Anne Diamond, who currently serves as Chief Operating Officer of John Dempsey Hospital, will serve as Interim Chief Executive Officer.

Please join me in thanking Dr. Summerer for his efforts, service and dedication to the Health Center.
