CEP America is pleased to announce the recruitment of Surinder Yadav, MD, to the role of Vice President of Hospital Medicine.
Dr. Yadav will play a key role in the integration of physician services across the Acute Care Continuum.
“Surinder Yadav has a long history of designing innovative solutions to improve care transitions across patient care settings,” praised Theo Koury, MD, Chief Operations Officer of CEP America. “We are excited to add his expertise and perspective as we continue to foster strategies that reduce costs and improve the patient experience.”
An expert in hospital medicine and healthcare quality, Dr. Yadav received his medical degree from the University of Liverpool in England. He completed his residency in internal medicine at Baystate Medical Center, the major teaching facility of Tufts University, in Springfield, Mass. He stayed on to serve as Associate Medical Director, Hospital Medicine & Healthcare Quality, as well as a teaching professor for fellows and residents. In these roles, he led the standardization of multiple quality protocols around sepsis and stroke care and served as Chair of the hospital’s Sepsis Quality Committee.
Most recently, Dr. Yadav previously served as Senior Regional Medical Director for TeamHealth, overseeing multiple hospital medicine programs along the West Coast.
“I was attracted to CEP America because of their physician-centric focus and passion for patient care,” said Dr. Yadav. “The organization is poised to have a tremendous impact on the patient experience, and I’m proud to join an innovative and forward thinking physician Partnership that has the vision to improve care coordination across multiple settings.”
A leader in acute care services management, CEP America has worked over the last forty years to develop processes and initiatives to better integrate hospital departments and improve the overall patient experience. Hospitals that partner with CEP America to staff both the emergency and inpatient departments frequently report reduced readmission rates, lower average length of stay and an improved case mix index.
