A $1 million gift has been given to Western Connecticut Health Network. Dr. Eric Moskow, a primary care physician and health care entrepreneur, says the money is meant to establish the first chair in primary care at the health network. Network CEO Dr John Muprhy says primary care providers serve as the gateway to healthy lives for people while improving outcomes and reducing hospitalizations. He added that the hospital will be better prepared to recruit, train, and retain the best providers to deliver cutting-edge care to patients. This is the 13th endowment Western Connecticut Health Network has received. Moskow is the former president of Family Medical Associates in Ridgefield and the current CEO of Accuity Delivery Systems. The chairperson will focus on establishing innovative approaches to patient care, engaging in research and attracting high-quality providers and medical students.
