Following its recent appointments of three division chiefs and a new staff president, Englewood Health on May 24 named Dr. Peter Shin as chief of medicine.

He succeeds Dr. Alexandra Gottdiener, who had served as chief of medicine since 2009, according to her profile.

Section chief of hospital medicine since 2015, Shin is board certified in internal medicine. He is a faculty member in Englewood’s Internal Medicine Residency Program, where he supervises residents. He also works with Englewood’s information technology department as the inpatient physician lead, helping to establish provider workflows and adapt the Epic electronic medical record system to fit the institution’s needs.

Shin serves on the health center’s task forces and committees, including the Medical Staff Professional Practice Evaluation Committee, Opioid Task Force, CHF Readmission Reduction, Denial Appeals and Revenue Recovery, and the Clinical Informatics Committee.

“Dr. Shin is not only an accomplished clinician in his field, but a respected leader who will help ensure that Englewood Health remains a top hospital in the nation,” Dr. Hillary Cohen, Englewood’s senior vice president of medical affairs, said in a statement.

Shin added that it was an honor to be selected “and to be entrusted with ensuring that our hospital patients are cared for properly and our residents are given an excellent learning experience.”

Shin received his M.D. from Columbia University and completed his internal medicine residency at New York-Presbyterian Columbia University Medical Center. He is a member of the Society of Hospital Medicine, a clinical assistant professor at Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine, and an exam writer for the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Englewood Health recently jumped one position from last year to No. 16 on NJBIZ’s 2022 list of New Jersey’s Top Hospitals.
