CKHA adds new physician

Dr. Omoniyi Akinpeloye

The Chatham-Kent Health Alliance has added a new physician to its ranks.

Dr. Omoniyi Akinpeloye is joining the alliance as a hospitalist, and will also work in the progressive care unit, officials said.

“We are delighted to welcome Dr. Akinpeloye to our hospital,” said Dr. Pervez Faruqi, CKHA’s chief of staff, in a media release. “His contributions to our services will be a great addition CKHA and help us further our commitment to delivering patient- and family-centered care to the Chatham-Kent community.”

Akinpeloye began his career in his home country of Nigeria. He later moved to Ireland where he pursued further training and served as an internal medicine specialist at various hospitals.

In his new role at CKHA, Akinpeloye will be an integral part of the hospitalist program, which oversees a range of inpatient areas, including the medicine units, complex continuing care, and the rehabilitation unit. The hospitalist program provides care to complex and long-term inpatients.

The progressive care unit, where Akinpeloye will also work, specializes in caring for patients with cardiac issues and chronic illnesses, often working towards stabilizing and improving patients’ health to facilitate their discharge or transfer to other units
