Somnath Ghosh, MD, named vice president of Medical Affairs for ARRMC
Somnath Ghosh, MD, has accepted the position of vice president of Medical Affairs at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center, effective June 1.
He succeeds emergency physician Courtney Wilson, MD, who has served in the VP role since last May. Drs. Ghosh and Wilson will work together in the coming months to ensure a smooth transition.
Dr. Ghosh has been an intensivist and pulmonologist at ARRMC since 2011, bringing with him a deep knowledge of critical care medicine as well as administrative experience. As medical director of the Intensive Care Unit since 2013, he was instrumental in bringing hospital telemedicine to support patients in critical care. Recently he earned a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Massachusetts.
Dr. Wilson, who helped lead pandemic preparations, announced in November that she would be stepping back from the leadership role to refocus on emergency medicine and her family.
In his new role, Dr. Ghosh will oversee ARRMC’s medical staff of employed and affiliated providers. He joins fellow VPMAs Eric Loeliger, MD, in Grants Pass and Lee Shapley, MD, in Ashland.
Dr. Ghosh came to the United States in 2002 after completing medical school at Byramjee Jeejeebhoy Medical College in India. He earned a master’s degree in pathology and molecular medicine from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in Ohio. He completed his internship and residency at Good Samaritan Hospital of Maryland in Baltimore and served a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.
In his free time, Dr. Ghosh enjoys spending time with his wife, nephrologist Renu Gupta, MD, and their two young children, both of whom were born at ARRMC. He enjoys fishing, snowboarding, soccer and “watching more TV than my wife would like me to.”
“We are fortunate to have Dr. Ghosh become part of our clinical leadership team,” said Jamie Grebosky, MD, chief medical officer. “Please join me in welcoming him to his new role.”
