Englewood Community Hospital recently welcomed a new Chief Medical Officer, Paul Chupka, DO.

Dr. Chupka first joined Englewood Community Hospital's team in 2015 as Site Medical Director Inpatient Services for Envision Physician Services. He is currently Secretary / Treasurer of the Medical Executive Committee at Englewood Community Hospital and has served on several hospital committees that have positively impacted patient care.

Dr. Chupka earned his Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine from University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Des Moines, Iowa. He completed his residency training at Eisenhower Army Medical Center in Fort Gordon, Georgia. In addition, he has held positions as Chief of Internal Medicine and Chief of Critical Care for Heidelberg Army Community Hospital, Heidelberg, Germany.

"Dr. Chupka has served in a variety of leadership roles in Virginia and Germany. He brings a tremendous amount of knowledge, experience, and leadership to this role. Our team looks forward to working with Dr. Chupka to continue to provide exceptional care to our community," Valerie Powell-Stafford, CEO.

"Being asked to assume the Chief Medical Officer position was very humbling. During my time here, I have seen the hospital grow yet maintain its small community charm. For me, it feels like home and the staff are like my extended family. I am very excited to take on a larger role in leadership and believe going forward the hospital can achieve more than it already has. My goals as CMO are to lead the facility beyond its current accomplishments and to excel further in patient quality, patient care and improve the overall patient experience, making the facility the best in the region," states Dr. Paul Chupka.
