Lowrey Sullivan, MD, Named NMC’s Chief Medical Officer
In an effort to ensure an even closer working relationship between the physicians and the St Alban's hospital, Dr Lowrey Sullivan has accepted the position of Chief Medical Officer on Northwestern Medical Center’s Leadership Team. He will begin his new part-time role at the hospital on or about June 1.
“I am very pleased that Dr Sullivan has accepted the position of Chief Medical Officer,” said Jill Bowen, NMC’s Chief Executive Officer. “This is a challenging role with many competing priorities and imperatives. Having a physician who already has the respect of our medical staff provides a strong foundation for the success of this position.”
Sullivan, a Board-Certified Obstetrician & Gynecologist with Green Mountain OB/GYN, will maintain his clinical practice while serving in the part-time position for the hospital. Sullivan earned his Bachelors degree from Middlebury College and his Medical Degree from the University of Vermont. He did his Internship and Residency training at the Albany College of Medicine.
“I’m very excited to be assuming this new role,” said Sullivan. “With the changing healthcare environment, it’s even more critical for physicians in private practice and employed physicians to work together with hospital administration to optimize patient care in our community.”
