Garnet Health, formerly the Greater Hudson Valley Health System, has appointed five medical directors from Garnet Health Doctors as part of its new system structure.
“We have designed our health system to deliver excellence in care,” said Garnet Health President and CEO Scott Batulis. “Working as a collective with our clinical staff, these system medical directors will help to enhance each patient’s experience at every point along their journey.”
As medical directors, these physicians partner with the health system’s Administration to lead critical healthcare services across the organization.
