Adam Kelly, M.D., Highland Chief of Neurology
Adam Kelly, M.D., has been named Highland Hospital’s Chief of Neurology. Dr. Kelly has been involved in neurological care at the hospital since April 2010, serving as the Director of Highland’s Stroke Center.
Under Dr. Kelly’s guidance, Highland has experienced sustained improvement in all New York state performance measures for stroke care. The hospital earned the American Heart Association’s Gold-Plus Award twice in two years as well. Dr. Kelly has also led Highland’s involvement in the Stroke Treatment Alliance of Rochester (STAR) collaborative to improve stroke care at hospitals throughout the community.
“Neurology is a challenging field, but I embrace that challenge, and I love patient care,” Dr. Kelly said. “I look forward to building on the programs and initiatives my predecessors have put into place.”
Dr. Kelly replaces Robert Holloway, M.D., M.P.H., who took on the role of Interim Chief of Neurology in addition to his duties as a professor and researcher at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Dr. Holloway was instrumental in the development of Highland’s new Neuromedicine Unit, which opened in February.
Dr. Kelly received his medical degree from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, where he also completed his neurology residency and a Vascular Neurology (Stroke) Fellowship.
