UBMD Internal Medicine has new CCO

Sanjay Chadha has recently joined UBMD Internal Medicine as its new chief operating officer. He most recently held the position of senior vice president of service line operations at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center (NFMMC), where he had worked since 2010. 

Chadha has previously managed service lines in primary care and specialty services, including practice transformation for primary care. He has also managed other inpatient and outpatient operations, including hospitalist programs.

Chadha has extensive experience in graduate medical education as well, having served as the designated institutional officer for the family medicine program at NFMMC.

“Sanjay was highly recommended to us, and it was immediately apparent when we met that he has exactly the right background and experience to transform our operations in UBMD Internal Medicine,” said physician Anne Curtis, UBMD Internal Medicine president and chief executive officer.

Chadha worked for Kaleida Health prior to NFMMC in the roles of vice president of business operations and vice president of ambulatory care and business development. Prior to Kaleida, he worked at ECMC as the vice president of ambulatory and transplant services, as well as assistant director of specialty clinical services.

His experience with UBMD’s healthcare partners and his broad knowledge of inpatient and outpatient operations put him in an ideal position to develop a plan for growth and clinical collaboration with Great Lakes Health, according to a press release.

Chadha earned a master’s degree in business administration and is a graduate of the Harvard Business School’s executive managing healthcare delivery program. He is a Leadership Buffalo graduate and received the “40 Under 40” award from Business First in 2004.
