Crouse Hospital has named Seth Kronenberg, MD, to the newly created position of Chief Physician Integration Officer.
In this new senior leadership role, Dr. Kronenberg has oversight for physician engagement, recruitment and integration of community-based practicing physicians in their relationships with the Crouse care network. He also serves as president and medical director of Crouse Medical Practice (CMP), overseeing operations and integration activities within the Crouse delivery system.
Dr. Kronenberg, a board-certified internist and partner with Internist Associates of Central New York (IACNY), will also be the primary Crouse contact for the Crouse-affiliated Health Alliance Physician Organization (PO) and other community-based physicians for alignment and integration activities, including network development and population health management projects.
Dr. Kronenberg joined IACNY, a 20-member provider group, in 2001, becoming managing partner in 2005. In 2010, IACNY became part of Crouse Medical Practice, PLLC, and Dr. Kronenberg was appointed medical director. He is also a board member of the Health Alliance PO.
“Physician integration and partnership development has been one of our strategic focus areas over the past year,” says Crouse CEO Kimberly Boynton. “This critically important role within the Crouse care delivery network reflects our continued commitment to building on hospital/physician alignment efforts made to date and further positioning Crouse for the future.”
Dr. Kronenberg, son of former Crouse CEO Paul Kronenberg, MD, received his bachelor's degree from the University of Pennsylvania. He attended medical school and did his residency and chief residency in internal medicine at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse. Dr. Kronenberg resides in Manlius with his wife and four children.
