Hess, 53, is chairman of the pathology department and professor of internal medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School. Hess would succeed Dr. Craig Brater, who is retiring June 30 after 13 years as dean and 27 years at IU.

Dr. Azita Chehresa, a family physician, has joined American Village as an attending physician. American Village is one of roughly 60 long-term care facilities operated by Indianapolis-based American Senior Communities.
