Two new physicians have joined the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance ranks.

Dr. Kinza Ijaz has joined the department of internal medicine and Dr. Adaora Obi is a new addition to the psychiatry department.

In 2014, Dr. Ijaz completed her Bachelor of Science medical radiation therapy at Laurentian University before going on to earn her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Medical and Health Sciences in St. Kitts. In 2022, she completed her residency training in internal medicine at Wayne State University in Michigan.

“I’m excited to join CKHA to provide comprehensive acute care to our community, while making a meaningful difference in our patient’s lives,” said Ijaz in a media release. “I look forward to working alongside CKHA’s dedicated team of healthcare professionals in a dynamic environment.”

Before moving on to take core psychiatry training in the United Kingdom, Dr. Obi obtained her medical school degree in Ghana. She also went on to higher training in the field of general adult psychiatry in Scotland. In Feb. 2020, Obi became a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

Obi said she has been warmed by the welcome she’s received at CKHA, noting the organization has gone “above and beyond” to ensure a smooth stress-free transition for herself and her family.

“I look forward to joining the team and contributing to the delivery of mental health services across Chatham-Kent,” she added.

Obi’s office is located at 240 Grand Ave. in Chatham, and the intake team can be reached without a referral at 519-351-6144 ext. 5051.
