Dr. Colin M. Feeney, M.D.
Dr. Colin M. Feeney, recently named one of the Top Ten Doctors by US News & World Report, has been instrumental in bringing an innovative program of Integrative Medicine to Highland Hospital, Alameda County Medical Center, in Oakland, CA.
Dr. Fenney graduated Cum Laude from Harvard University and earned his M.D. in 1979 at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio. He came to Highland General Hospital in Oakland for his Internship and Residency where he was Chief Resident and Resident of the Year in 1983-1984. He remained at Highland where he is currently Clinical Professor of Medicine in the Department of Internal Medicine, Director of the Medical Intensive Care Unit, Division Chief, Critical Care Medicine, Director of Medical Education, Chairman of the Library Committee and member of the Critical Care Committee.
He also serves on the California Transplant Donor Council at Highland and is the East Bay Site Director and Associate Program Director of the Pulmonary Critical Care Fellowship Program, California Pacific Medical Center/ Alameda County Medical Center.
Dr. Feeney holds board certifications with the American Board of Internal Medicine with subspecialty qualifications in Critical Care Medicine and Palliative Care and Hospice Medicine 2012-2022.
Dr. Feeney is a dedicated healer with a strong desire to give back to the community and help the underserved populations who are served by the public hospital. He was selected Teacher of the Year five times and voted Best Bay Area Internist 1993, San Francisco Focus, outstanding Physician of the Year ACMC 2002, Henry J. Kaiser Award for Excellence in Teaching 2006, and Employee Excellence Award ACMC 2009.
Dr. Feeney has been involved in numerous research studies and has been published in various prestigious medical journals.
Dr. Feeney will describe the planning and strategies required to bring Traditional Chinese Medicine to a public hospital setting for both in and out patient populations. Alameda County Medical Center’s (ACMC) Highland Hospital facility serves as Alameda County’s primary source of health care for medically indigent and uninsured patients. This is a population that usually would not have access to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture treatments are a proven evidenced-based method for treating pain and for reducing symptoms related to a number of chronic diseases and the side effects of cancer treatment. Hence, acupuncture treatments can stretch Highland Hospital ’s scarce resources by reducing hospital stays and decreasing patient pharmaceutical consumption.
Working with Dr. Amy Matecki of the International Center for Integrative Medicine (ICIM), Dr. Feeney helped lay the foundation for this service which began in April of 2011. ICIM’s program represents the first time a public hospital has created such a service in the U.S. Dr. Feeney will discuss the challenges encountered and the strategies used to develop this groundbreaking program from the perspective of a Western medicine “insider” and share the vision for its continued development.
