We are pleased to announce that last month Gregory Tino, MD, was appointed as the next Chief of Medicine at PPMC. Dr. Tino officially assumed his new role on November 1, 2013. As we welcome Dr. Tino to his new role, we also congratulate our former Chief of Medicine, Jack Ende, MD, on his new roles as Assistant Vice President for the University of Pennsylvania Health System and Assistant Dean for Advanced Medical Practice in the Perelman School of Medicine.
Over the last 25 years that Dr. Tino has been with the Health System, he has held various clinical and administrative positions in the Pulmonary, Allergy & Critical Care Division at HUP. He served as the Director of the Pulmonary Outpatient Practice for many years, and HUP’s Chief of Pulmonary Clinical Services since 2007. In 1997, Dr. Tino became an attending physician at Penn Presbyterian.
A nationally recognized expert in pulmonary diseases and critical care medicine – particularly in interstitial lung disease and bronchiectasis – Dr. Tino has won a number of awards, including being named to Philadelphia Magazine’s annual list of Top Docs.
In addition to his new roles with the Health System and Perelman School of Medicine, Dr. Ende is also serving as Executive Medical Director for Patient Signature Programs, and maintains his existing faculty appointment and endowed chair within the Department of Medicine.
For 16 years, Dr. Ende served with great distinction as Penn Presbyterian Medical Center’s Chief of Medicine, overseeing that Department’s expansion and transition to a CPUP department known for outstanding inpatient and outpatient care, and excellence in education. His contributions in establishing the department’s subspecialty programs, primary care programs (including the Primary Care Residency Program), numerous other clinical programs, and outstanding opportunities for Penn students, residents and fellows to learn, and for faculty to grow and develop are among his legacies.
We are thrilled that Dr. Ende is continuing to practice and teach at PPMC.
Please join us in congratulating both Dr. Tino and Dr. Ende on their new roles.
