Congrats to Albany Medical College on their successful recruitment of Dr. Stephanie Jones, new Chair of Anesthesiology
Stephanie B. Jones, MD, has been appointed chair of the Department of Anesthesiology. Dr. Jones comes to Albany Med from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, where she served as associate professor and vice chair for education and faculty development. Her previous positions include associate professor of anesthesia at Harvard Medical School.
“A proven academic physician and leader, Dr. Jones will be an outstanding addition to our clinical leadership team,” said Vincent P. Verdile, MD, ’84, The Lynne and Mark Groban, MD, ’67 Distinguished Dean of Albany Medical College and senior executive vice president for system care delivery. “We extend a warm welcome to Dr. Jones and our profound gratitude to Dr. Kevin Roberts for his many years of dedication and steadfast leadership to Albany Med.”
Kevin Roberts, MD, ’77, who served Albany Med with distinction for two decades, was one of the Medical Center’s longest-serving chairs and is the immediate past president of the Albany Medical College Alumni Association’s Board of Directors.
“I’m looking forward to building on the great platform Dr. Roberts has created,” Dr. Jones said, mentioning retention and recruitment of clinically excellent physicians and caregivers, faculty development, and new social media initiatives among the ideas she plans to implement.
“There is a wonderful research community here in the Capital Region,” she added, “and I look forward to exploring academic partnerships with institutions like RPI. Engineering and anesthesiology have natural synergy.”
Dr. Jones received her medical degree from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. She completed her residency at its sister institution, Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
