Madan Joins Hospital in Dual Roles as Chief Medical Officer and Chief Population Health Officer

Lanham, MD – Doctors Community Hospital is pleased to announce that Sunil Madan, MD, CPE, FACEP, has joined its executive team as chief medical officer and chief population health officer. He replaced Dr. Gabriel Jaffe, who was the hospital’s first chief medical officer and recently resigned from that position.  Jaffe plans to continue practicing internal medicine at Metropolitan Medical Specialists in Lanham, Maryland. 

As chief medical officer, Madan’s primary roles will be to guide clinical strategies, physician engagement efforts as well as quality and safety delivery initiatives in collaboration with other hospital leaders.  Combined with his passion for caring for patients, his leadership will help the hospital advance its commitment to the community.  He stated, “As I learned about Doctors Community Hospital’s tradition of providing high-quality, comprehensive and accessible health care that the residents of Prince George’s County have relied on for more than 40 years, I knew it was an organization where I could make a positive and meaningful contribution.” 

Prior to accepting the position, Madan toured Doctors Community Hospital with Paul Hagens, vice president of Human Resources. Hagens spoke to and knew the names of all the employees they passed.  Madan highlighted that moment as one that reinforced his decision to join the hospital’s family-like culture. 

Population health is a major industry focus aimed at improving the health of the community by elevating efficiencies, increasing patient satisfaction and reducing costs.   Madan will also serve as the hospital’s chief population health officer to further such efforts. “We will be researching new ways and best practices to provide the right care at the right time in the right locations.  By doing so, we can encourage long-term health management,” he stated.  He went on to emphasize that learning to genuinely and compassionately listen to patients is key to providing clear pathways to quality care.  “That’s what population health is all about.”

Madan received his bachelor’s degrees in biology and chemistry as well as his medical doctorate at the University of Missouri.  Afterwards, he completed his residency in emergency medicine at Emory University in Georgia – serving as its chief resident. In addition to having earned a certificate in medical management from Johns Hopkins University, he is board certified in emergency medicine and a certified physician executive.  He also is a teaching faculty member and assistant professor in the emergency medicine residency programs at both Georgetown University and MedStar Washington Hospital Center (MWHC).  Prior to assuming his role at Doctors Community Hospital, Dr. Madan served for six years as the medical director and five years as the associate medical director in MWHC’s Emergency Department.

“As healthcare models evolve, hospital leadership must be skilled at managing change and developing strong partnerships with stakeholders,” shared Philip Down, chief executive officer and president at Doctors Community Hospital.  “Dr. Madan’s proven track record of cross-functional leadership, change management, information technology and process improvement make him perfectly suited for this role.”

Madan and his family have lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina.  An avid Tar Heels fan, he currently resides in McLean, Virginia, with his wife and three children.
