Dr. Adia K. Ross, a 2008 alumna of the Master of Healthcare Administration program at the University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health, has been named Duke Regional Hospital’s chief medical officer (CMO). She started in her new role on January 1.

“We interviewed a number of exceptional candidates for this position, and we are delighted to warmly welcome Adia to the Duke Regional family,” said Dr. Katie Galbraith, president of Duke Regional Hospital. “Adia has the clinical, administrative and leadership experience to support us in our vision of becoming the best community hospital.”

As chief medical officer, Dr. Ross will oversee quality and clinical program priorities for the 369-bed community hospital and will manage medical staff partnerships. She also will support Duke University Health System leadership in setting performance targets and metrics and measuring and improving clinical outcomes.

In her previous role, Dr. Ross served as Duke Raleigh’s medical director for hospital medicine. She completed her internal medicine residency as well as an administrative fellowship at Duke University in 2013 and received her Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine in 2009.

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to continue the legacy that former Duke Regional Hospital Chief Medical Officer Dr. Barbara Griffith and others have laid forth at this five-star community hospital,” Dr. Ross said. “I look forward to partnering with hospital team members to continue to provide the very best care for our patients, their loved ones and each other.”
