Welcome from the Department Chair

On behalf of our faculty, welcome to the Department of Anesthesiology at Hackensack University Medical Center, one of the nation’s leading health care institutions. As Chair, my goal is to support clinical excellence, quality education and innovative research. We attract faculty from the nation’s leading institutions and offer state-of-the-art technology and resources to promote delivery of care of the safest and highest quality.

Since joining the Department in 1986 and becoming Chair in 1992, I have had the privilege of being part of tremendous growth in our department, institution and specialty. My roles as a member of the medical executive committee, hospital board of governors and executive leadership afford representation of Anesthesiology in all essential domains of the medical center’s function. I am truly excited about the opening of the new Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall University, and my roles as Founding Chairman of the Hackensack Meridian Seton Hall Department of Anesthesiology and delegate for the New Jersey State Society of Anesthesiologists.

Thank you for your interest in the Anesthesiology Residency Program at Hackensack University Medical Center. I encourage you to explore how our program will help prepare physicians to be active members and potential leaders in our field.
