Message from the Chief
MD, M.L.S., SFHM, FACP, CHCQM
Chief of Hospital Medicine,
Welcome to the Division of Hospital Medicine, the largest division in the Department of Medicine at Upstate Medical University.
I am truly honored to be part of this division. We take pride in the services we provide to our communities. Not only does our division provide high-quality and high-value patient care, but we also advance inpatient medicine through education and research.
Our division plays an integral role in providing efficient care through involvement in many of the hospital's operations. Many of our providers have taken positions in the CDI department, UM department, and other throughput processes.
One of the essential parts of our mission is to shape future medical professionals through education. Our hospitalists are the primary educators on the inpatient medicine services. We provide training, mentorship, and supervision for different learners, including medical students from our College of Medicine, residents from the Internal Medicine and Family Practice residency programs, and Advanced Practice Practitioners from our College of Health Professions and LeMoyne College.
Our hospitalists are also involved in many research and quality improvement projects. Finally, the greatest strength of our division comes from our people who are committed to providing the best care possible by utilizing teamwork and multidisciplinary approaches.
Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions regarding our division and services.
