Newton, MA [May 2015] –Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates, a medical practice of Atrius Health, has appointed Mary O’Neil as Site Administrator of its Kenmore practice. As practice administrator O’Neil assumes responsibility for day-to-day operations of the site such as collaboration with chiefs and specialty directors in internal medicine, pediatrics, medical and surgical specialties, obstetrics and gynecology, behavioral health, radiology, lab and pharmacy. She also will also help implement organization-wide initiatives at the Kenmore practice.

“Mary is highly respected by both clinicians and staff for her ability to create an environment which allows everyone to be successful,” says Dr. Steven Lampert, Interim SVP, Urban Region and Chief Clinical Officer of Atrius Health. “She continually demonstrates the necessary assertiveness, patience and perseverance to solve both small and large problems.
