Leading endocrinologist appointed physician-in-chief at Boston Medical Center

Anthony "Tony" Hollenberg, MD, has been selected as Boston Medical Center’s new physician-in-chief, BMC announced. In his new position, Dr. Hollenberg, a physician-scientist in endocrinology, will also serve as the John Wade Professor and chair of the Department of Medicine at Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine. 

In welcoming him to his new position, Karen Antman, MD, provost and dean of BU’s Chobanian & Avedisian SOM, said Dr. Hollenberg is "an outstanding NIH-funded investigator in everything thyroid."

Dr. Hollenberg comes to BMC from New York City, where he was the physician-in-chief at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and chair of the Joan and Sanford I. Weill Department of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine. 

Kate Walsh, CEO of Boston Medical Center Health System, said she is confident Dr. Hollenberg will not only bring clinical expertise to BMC but will also help to "cultivate and attract top talent in academic medicine and research to our campus."

Dr. Hollenberg replaces David Coleman, MD, retiring chief and chair of the department of medicine at BMC. Dr. Coleman, who held a leadership position in the department since 2006, focused on expanding the hospital research initiatives and also focused on attracting extraordinary faculty to the medical school and hospital, according to the release.

Dr. Hollenberg is passionate about researching molecular and physiological mechanisms and how they affect the way thyroid hormones regulate metabolism and, consequently, body weight.
