CT Children's physician group taps Boston exec as president

Farmington's Connecticut Children's Specialty Group has named a top Boston doctor as its new president.

Dr. Glenn Focht will begin his new job Dec. 4. He has close to 20 years of experience as a physician and healthcare clinician and administrator. He comes to Connecticut Children's Medical Center from Boston Children's Hospital where he was the chief medical officer for the Pediatric Physicians' Organization at Children's (PPOC).

During his time in Boston, Focht played a pivotal role creating an integrated behavioral health program and helped grow the hospital's primary care network. Before that, he was with the Central Maine Group where he was the first president and physician executive for more than 350 physicians practicing 37 specialties, located in 19 communities.

"Glenn's experience and expertise will help guide our new growth strategy as we work to expand our reach and improve access to care for all children," said Jim Shmerling, Connecticut Children's CEO.
