Women & Infants chief of medicine leaving for Lifespan
I am now pleased to announce that Karen Rosene-Montella, MD, has been appointed to the position of senior vice president for women’s services and clinical integration for the Lifespan system. Dr. Rosene-Montella will report to Timothy Babineau, MD. At the same time, she will be appointed Vice Chair for Quality and Outcomes in the Department of Medicine. It is anticipated that Dr. Rosene-Montella will be joining Lifespan in September.
Lifespan says Dr. Rosene-Montella’s new job is part of efforts to rethink the way it delivers care, particularly around creating so called “patient centered care.”
I have a call out to Dr. Rosene-Montella to ask why she decided to leave Women and Infants. The hospital itself wasn’t available to comment, but should get back to me tomorrow.
It’s also possible some other Women and Infant doctors will be leaving with Rosene-Montella. Rhode Island Hospital’s public relations person had this to say-
There are some doctors who may chose to follow Dr. Rosene-Montella, but I’m unable to provide any additional information at this time.
