Hochenberg to retire as head of MidHudson Regional Hospital


POUGHKEEPSIE – MidHudson Regional Hospital Executive Director Paul Hochenberg announced plan to retire later this year after serving at the hospital since December 2014 shortly after Westchester Medical Center Health Network took over the former St. Francis Hospital and brought it out of bankruptcy.

He will stay on until a successor is named and assist with the transition.

Westchester Medical Center Health President Michael Israel said Hochenberg “has been instrumental in the rebirth of MidHudson Regional Hospital and its role as a force in the community it serves.”

Hochenberg spent over 45 years in healthcare leadership positions in the greater area having led St. Luke’s Hospital in Newburgh and then Craig House Hospital in Beacon. He also worked at Long Island Jewish Medical Center and at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla before serving in Poughkeepsie.
