Shroff has been a member of WCHCC Board for more than 10 years and has been integral in WMCHealth’s governance since the Network’s founding in 2015.  Prior to his appointment as Chair, Shroff served on the Board as 1st Vice Chair as well as Chair of the Patient Experience Committee and the Strategic Planning and Technology Committee.

“WMCHealth is dynamic organization that is both a healthcare resource and economic engine for the communities we serve,” said Shroff. “My enthusiasm for this opportunity is rooted in the WMCHealth mission which, in part, is to provide the highest-quality of care for all residents of the Hudson Valley. We will fulfill this portion of our mission in 2022 with the scheduled opening of the reimagined HealthAlliance Hospital on Mary’s Avenue in Kingston and the continued evolution of Bon Secours Community Hospital in Port Jervis.  Many more exciting projects are in our plans and I am honored to serve the Board, and our communities, in this role.”

WMCHealth would like to thank outgoing Board Chair Mitchell Hochberg for his leadership and dedication to the organization. Hochberg leaves the position with the Network’s annual, community economic impact at an estimated $3.45 billion.

“WMCHealth has a carefully-crafted plan for continued growth and a drive to achieve patient-centered care throughout Network operations,” said Hochberg.  “Zubeen Shroff has been instrumental in the development of this plan and his business acumen makes him an excellent choice for the Chair position. I would like to thank my fellow board members for their partnership and dedication during my tenure as Chair, and I must praise the WMCHealth management team for their outstanding work in the face of unprecedented challenges during the pandemic.”  

Shroff is Managing Director of Galen Partners.  In addition to his work on the WCHCC Board of Directors, Shroff began volunteering for the Westchester Medical Center Foundation Board in 2005 and has served as Foundation Board Chair.

The remainder of the 2022 WCHCC Board of Directors Executive Committee includes: Mark Tulis, Vice Chair and Treasurer; John Heimerdinger, Vice Chair; Susan Gevertz, Secretary and Michael Israel, President.
