The UMass Memorial Medical Group Difference
UMass Memorial Medical Group is one of the largest and most experienced caregiver networks on the East Coast.
Our 1,100 medical group doctors see patients at more than 70 convenient locations in central Massachusetts. Our health care professionals are medical school faculty members, researchers and lifelong learners. Above all, they’re compassionate caregivers.
Like the legendary television character from M*A*S*H* Colonel Sherman Potter, Steve Tosi, MD, president of the Medical Group, was also an officer and physician in the military. Where Colonel Potter took care of troops in isolated areas in Korea, Dr. Tosi saw patients in a remote area on a reservation in South Dakota. Those parallels and others are part of a fun feature from the Worcester Business Journal's Central Massachusetts Health publication that takes a look at two UMass Memorial physicians – the other is pediatric surgeon Jeremy Aidlen, MD – and their Hollywood counterparts.
The second annual Herman G. Berkman Diabetes Clinical Innovation Fund Grant was awarded to Leslie Domalik, MD, and Asem Ali, MD. Their project, which focuses on inpatients, has revolutionized inpatient diabetes care and has decreased the length of hospital stays by 25% for people living with diabetes. Nationally, one-third of hospital patients have diabetes or hyperglycemia, and that number is greater than 40% within UMass Memorial hospitals. The study standardizes glucose monitoring and insulin administration during meals. The Center of Excellence offers a blood glucose management service that addresses the fact that insulin delivery and meal consumption times often lack consistency. The program has improved outcomes for our inpatients living with diabetes.
Our Medical Center physicians Ajit Puri, MD, chief of the division of neuroimaging and intervention, and Francesco Massari, MD, PhD, neurointerventional radiology, are the first in New England to use a newly approved device to treat aneurysms. The device, called Comaneci, was used in a patient with an aneurysm rupture and intracranial bleeding. In a minimally invasive procedure, this device acts as a temporary bridge in the aneurysm coiling process.
