Mar 10, 2014

Accomplished physician and healthcare leader Donald F. Denny Jr., MD, has been selected as the Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs at Princeton HealthCare System (PHCS).

Board certified in Diagnostic Radiology with subspecialty certification in Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Dr. Denny has been a member of the PHCS Medical Staff since 1991 and formerly served as Chairman of Radiology. He also has served as President of the Radiology Society of New Jersey and President of Princeton Radiology Associates.

In his new role, Dr. Denny will have primary responsibility for the quality of care provided by all units of PHCS and provide leadership in all aspects of medical affairs.

"The physicians and management team members who were involved in the interview and selection process felt Dr. Denny was a perfect fit," said PHCS President and CEO Barry S. Rabner. "He has the knowledge of best practices and the leadership skills needed to excel in this position and help us to continue our tradition of providing exceptional care."

Dr. Denny earned his MD from Hahnemann Medical College (now Drexel University College of Medicine) and completed his internship and residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital, where he served as chief resident in diagnostic radiology. He then completed a clinical fellowship in cardiovascular radiology at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. His academic appointments include positions at Yale University, Harvard Medical School and Brown University. Prior to joining PHCS, Dr. Denny was on staff at Rhode Island Hospital and Yale-New Haven Hospital. While serving as Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs, Dr. Denny will maintain a limited role as a private-practice interventional radiologist.

Outside of medicine, Dr. Denny has a wide range of interests that include skiing, swimming, bicycling, and competing in triathlons. In December, he and his wife Catherine Knight, an architect in Princeton, completed hiking the "48 New Hampshire 4,000 footers," a series of peaks in the White Mountains.

A pilot, Dr. Denny owns a 1967 Beechcraft Bonanza, a small classic plane that he and Catherine like to fly all over the East Coast and the Midwest.

Dr. Denny and his wife have lived in Princeton for 22 years. They have three adult daughters, Elizabeth, Catherine and Sarah.
