Karina Anderson appointed as new director of practice management at Thompson Health

UR Medicine Thompson Health has announced the appointment of Karina Anderson as the new Director of Practice Management, effective December 4.


Anderson, a resident of Pittsford, brings a wealth of experience to the role, backed by her academic background in Business Administration from Colorado Mountain College and a Master’s in Leadership in Health Care Systems from the University of Rochester. Her journey with UR Medicine began ten years ago at Highland Hospital in Rochester, where she managed various departments including OB/GYN and the Perinatal Center.

Anderson’s career progression within the UR Medicine system includes her role as patient access manager at Thompson since 2017. More recently, she balanced her position as a per diem IT Analyst in Thompson’s Consolidated Business Office with her full-time role as operations manager for Highland Family Medicine at Highland Hospital. Her diverse experiences in both operational and technical aspects of healthcare management have equipped her with a unique skill set for her new position.

In her role as Director of Practice Management, Anderson will oversee 13 primary care practices across a three-county area. She will be instrumental in guiding Thompson Health’s primary care network, which currently serves approximately 62,000 patients, making it the largest in the Finger Lakes region. A significant upcoming project under her leadership will be the transition of Thompson primary care practices to a new electronic health record system. Kurt M. Koczent, Executive Vice President/COO of Thompson Health, expressed confidence in Anderson’s capabilities, emphasizing her key contributions to various initiatives and her ability to meet community healthcare needs.
