Harbor Health has welcomed Dr. Monera Wong as the non-profit organization’s new chief medical officer. Wong is an experienced clinical leader with a strong commitment to improving health care delivery for older adults and vulnerable populations.

“Dr. Wong’s experience and success as a physician leader will contribute greatly to our work,” says Chuck Jones, President and CEO of Harbor Health. “I am grateful to have a leadership partner with her depth of experience and passion for bringing exceptional care to the most vulnerable members of our communities.”

Wong previously served as chair of Transitional Care and chief of Geriatric Medicine at Atrius Health and interim chief of Geriatric Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. While at MGH, she also was the medical director of the Geriatric Primary Care Practice. She was appointed assistant professor in Medicine, Part-Time, at Harvard Medical School in 2018.

As chief medical officer, Wong will lead Harbor’s community health centers and Elder Service Plan, a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), in delivering compassionate, convenient, and patient-centered health care.  Her deep expertise in geriatric medicine across various care settings is timely as Harbor explores innovative ways to enhance support for frail elders in the community.

“I am looking forward to strengthening Harbor Health’s existing system of care delivery to our older generations,” Wong said. “Having the ability to connect with and see that all vulnerable populations in the communities we serve have greater access to exceptional healthcare and social supports is truly inspiring to me as well.”

Wong assumed her new role at Harbor at the end of 2021 and was immediately involved in the organization’s planning and response to the recent COVID surge.
