The Academic Cycle

Another academic year commenced this summer. Another academic cycle. Jefferson and our Department remain vibrant, successful and agile. We welcomed six terrific interns in June, then added another intern (and three other residents) upon the closure of Hahnemann Hospital. This summer we added eight faculty members to our Department, several new advanced practice providers and many new staff members. Our administrative team has evolved – we have celebrated the promotion of Florence Williams to Department Administrator, and Andrea DelMastro to the position of Director of Clinical Operations.

Enterprise wide – per the Bob Dylan tune “The Times They Are A-Changin’” – this year we expect to welcome Einstein Healthcare Network and Fox Chase Cancer Center to Jefferson Health. Surgery is represented in five new service line initiatives – Cancer, General Surgery, Heart and Vascular, Respiratory, and Transplant – each with reporting roles to the Integrated Strategic and Financial Planning (ISFP) process.

Our Department faculty continues to shine – Dr. Ernest (Gary) Rosato is the new President of the prestigious Halsted Society. Dr. Gerald Isenberg has ascended to the Presidency of the TJUH Medical Staff. Dr. Benjamin Phillips is the President of the Pennsylvania Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons.

We are pleased to provide the exciting stories in this, our 15th year of Jefferson Surgical Solutions. The academic cycle continues…
