Dr. Zorn serves as the co-director of Obstetric Anesthesiology at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center (Hartford, CT) and as the director of Obstetric Anesthesiology at Mercy Medical Center (Springfield, CT). He is also very involved in Anesthesiology resident medical education, having been awarded a Teacher of the Year award several years in a row by the University of Connecticut Anesthesiology Residents. Dr. Zorn has been on the Women and Infants Peer Review Committee at Saint Francis Hospital for several years.
Dr. Zorn has particular interest in all aspects of Obstetric Anesthesiology with particular emphasis on labor analgesia and high-risk delivery. He greatly enjoys sharing his enthusiasm for Obstetric Anesthesia with the University of Connecticut Anesthesiology Residents and the Student Nurse Anesthetists (SRNA’s) that rotate through labor and delivery at Saint Francis with him.
In his spare time, he enjoys travelling with his husband Tim and spending time at their home with their two rescue cats, Truffles and Ziti. At home he enjoys spending time watching television, computer gaming, indoor cycling, and home improvement.
Why did you decide to become a physician?
Coming out of medical school, I originally thought that I wanted to go into General Surgery, but came to realize during my intern year that that specialty did not fit my personality. Luckily, I had an Anesthesiology elective during my intern year (which I had sadly not had the pleasure of experiencing in medical school) and came to realize that the specialty was a much better fit for me. Over the course of residency, the unique challenges and satisfaction provided by obstetric anesthesia spoke to me and after residency I decided to pursue a fellowship in Obstetric Anesthesiology at one of the larger labor and delivery centers in the nation.
