Kristen Hutchins named director of Rome Health Primary Care


ROME — Kristen Hutchins has been named director of Rome Health Primary Care to provide leadership and support for all of the hospital’s affiliated primary care practices, announced Vice-president of Physician Practices Dr. Michael Attilio.

A native of Boonville, Hutchins has more than 20 years of experience in primary care and has served as director of the hospital’s primary care clinics in Rome, Boonville and Camden for the last five years. As director of primary care, she has also assumed responsibility for Rome Medical Group, including pediatrics.

“Kristen has extensive experience in unifying teams to deliver high quality, patient-centered care,” Dr. Attilio said.

“She fosters conversations with providers and staff to refine workflows to expand access and deliver the best outcomes.”

According to Attilio, Hutchins has been an instrumental member of the planning team for the new Rome Health Medical Center under construction on the hospital’s main campus. The new facility will bring together primary care, surgical specialists, diagnostic testing and pharmacy under one roof.

When construction is complete in the fall, Delta Health Center will relocate to the new Medical Center, followed by Rome Medical Group and Rome Health Surgical Specialists in early January 2023.

Pediatrics will remain at the Rome Medical Group location, 1801 Black River Blvd.

“For patients, the new Medical Center will provide a welcoming environment that is easily accessible with the convenience of a pharmacy and testing on site,” Hutchins said.

“Our teams are looking forward to working together in a collaborative environment where we can deliver the best care for our patients.”

Educated in medical administration at Mohawk Valley Community College, Hutchins gained first-hand experience in primary care operations as she moved through the ranks, assuming increasing levels of responsibility.

She joined Rome Medical Group in 2002 as a receptionist and also worked referrals and switchboard before becoming a team lead. In 2012, she was promoted to practice manager of Delta Medical Center in 2012.

She assumed responsibility for Camden Family Care and Boonville Family Care in 2017. Under her leadership, the practices achieved Patient Centered Medical Home accreditation in recognition of the commitment to a patient-centered approach to care.

All of Rome Health’s primary care offices are currently accepting new patients.
