CKHA adds new OB/GYN

Dr. Abdulhamid Azaghdani

The Chatham-Kent Health Alliance has welcomed a new obstetrician and gynecologist physician to the team.

Dr. Abdulhamid Azaghdani has joined the Women and Children’s department, following a career that took him to Newfoundland and then Qatar for four years, prior to coming to Chatham-Kent.

The doctor said his family is grateful to have learned about Chatham, noting that while moving a family across the globe can be daunting, they have been well supported.

“I look forward to integrating our family into the community and serving my patients well,” Azaghdani said in a recent media release.

After finishing his medical school training in Libya in 1993, Dr. Azaghdani completed a Fellowship of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists in the UK, as well as further training through the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in Canada.

CKHA acting chief of staff Dr. Zeke Milkovic said the hospital is pleased to welcome the new doctor to the clinical team and the community.

“He is a great addition to CKHA and will help us further our commitment of delivering patient-and family-centred care to families in Chatham-Kent,” Milkovic said.

Physicians are encouraged to refer patients who are currently travelling out of town, or are on a wait list, to Azaghdani to facilitate timely health care.
