ABEM recertifies Dr. Paul Bonucci

Dr. Paul Bonucci, medical director of the Illinois Valley Community Hospital Emergency Department, has been recertified by the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM).

ABEM certifies emergency physicians who meet its educational, professional standing and examination standards. Its mission is to protect the public by promoting and sustaining the integrity, quality and standards of training in and practice of emergency medicine. There are currently nearly 29,000 ABEM-certified emergency physicians.

A 1980 graduate of Princeton High School, Bonucci earned his medical degree from Northwestern University in Chicago, attending the school on a scholarship from the U.S. Army. He later completed an emergency medicine residency at Cook County Hospital in Chicago.

Bonucci returned to the Illinois Valley in 2008 after serving as an emergency medical physician at Trinity Hospital in Augusta, Ga., where he went after retiring from the Army.
