Urologist Peter Albertsen, MD, has been named medical director of the UConn Medical Group, a 350-member multi-specialty physician practice, and James Thornton has been named director of the 224-bed John Dempsey Hospital, creating a new leadership team for the health center’s clinical enterprise.

“Their familiarity and experience with the health center, combined with the perspective each has gained from work on national committees or at other hospitals, make them qualified to help us continue to build and expand our clinical practice and create a safer and more efficient university hospital,” said Dr. Peter Deckers, MD, executive director of health affairs and dean of the University of Connecticut School of Medicine.

Both positions previously had been held by Steven Strongwater, MD, who was named CEO of Stony Brook University Medical Center, Stony Brook, NY, in December.

Dr. Albertsen also serves as associate dean for clinical research planning and director of the urology residency program at the Health Center. He is a trustee of the American Board of Urology and immediate past president of the American Association of Clinical Urologists.
