Dr. Bock named president of Harper, Hutzel

Brooks F. Bock, M.D., chair of the WSU Department of Emergency Medicine, has been named president of Harper University and Hutzel Women's hospitals, effective Jan. 1. He will continue to serve as department chair and specialist-in-chief of emergency medicine until a new national search process is concluded; the search is anticipated to last until about June 30.

In addition, Dr. Bock will remain a faculty member in the WSU Department of Emergency Medicine and will practice clinically in the emergency departments at Detroit Receiving and Huron Valley-Sinai hospitals.

"Our department is in great shape," Dr. Bock said. "Our teaching is superb; the research efforts lead the way for academic departments of emergency medicine nationally; our clinical services are second to none; and the folks who make up our resident cadre, faculty and staff are outstanding. Each of you make me proud to say that I'm part of Emergency Medicine at the DMC and WSU."
