We wish Dr. Hoefer well in her retirement.
On December 31, 2022, Dr. Ann Hoefer retired after serving hundreds of children and families on the CT Shoreline as a pediatrician with Guilford Pediatrics for 28 years.
In a letter to patients, she wrote, “I can honestly say that I will look back on a career which has brought me a great deal of happiness. The parents and children of Guilford Pediatrics have made taking care of children deeply satisfying. In addition, one could not have asked for better coworkers and staff. Saying goodbye is bittersweet, but at 74, I think it’s time.”
Dr. Ann Hoefer was born and raised in Columbia, S.C. While attending graduate school in English at Yale, she discovered that women were being accepted into medical school in increased numbers and, fulfilling a childhood dream, took courses allowing her to enter the Yale Medical School.
She graduated in 1980 and trained in psychiatry and forensic psychiatry at Yale, but after having children decided to switch to pediatrics. She joined Guilford Pediatrics in 1994 after completing her pediatrics residency at Yale. Along with Dr. Nolfo, she ran the Shoreline Concussion Center at Guilford Pediatrics.
She lives in Madison with her husband, Ben Bradburn, an orthopedic surgeon; they have two adult daughters.
“Dr. Hoefer will truly be missed by all of us at Guilford Pediatrics. We wish her much luck in retirement. She has added so much value to our office and community with her dedication to the children and families on the CT Shoreline,” commented Dr. Dia Flanagan.
