Department of Medicine Announces New Leadership Roles in Geriatrics

Highland’s Department of Medicine announces new leadership roles for Corey Romesser, M.D., and Jennifer Muniak, M.D. 

Dr. Romesser has been named medical director for Geriatrics at Highland Hospital. “Dr. Romesser brings a wealth of experience as a Geriatric Hospitalist and administrative leader,” said Annie Medina-Walpole, M.D., chief of the Geriatrics/Aging Division within the University of Rochester Department of Medicine, “and is the perfect person to take on this new role of Medical Director. I am confident that he will continue the visionary advancements in geriatric models of care at Highland and serve as a role model and mentor to faculty and trainees alike.”

Highland Chief of Medicine Rebeca Monk, M.D., commented, “Corey goes above and beyond to ensure that hospitalized older adults get the best care possible. He has already demonstrated skillful leadership in his role as head of the geriatric fracture/co-management team at Highland. The physicians on his team (and I) appreciate his meticulous care and attention to all he does, his compassion, and his fairmindedness. I have no doubt that he will continue to grow and excel in this role.”

Dr. Muniak has been named medical director of the Highland’s at Brighton. She is succeeding Joseph Nicholas, M.D., M.P.H. as medical director, who now serves as Associate Chief of Medicine, as well as Director for Medical Education at Highland. “Dr. Muniak is well known regionally and nationally,” said Dr. Nicholas, “for championing effective and efficient interprofessional care for older adults. There isn’t a better person in our system to lead the medical staff at HAB, and work collaboratively with other nursing home colleagues to optimize care for the most complicated patients in our system.”
