Houston,TX (PRWEB) February 20, 2012
Aurora Hospice management is pleased to introduce Mansoora Sheikh, MD as the agency’s new Medical Director. Dr. Sheikh began her practice in the Houston area in 1979 and since that time has become one of the most widely respected internal medicine and geriatric physicians within Greater Houston. Dr. Sheikh is Board Certified in Hospice and Palliative care and brings all of her experience and knowledge to the Aurora Hospice team.
“Dr. Sheikh has a passion and total commitment to end-of-life care, as evidenced by her many years of working with the geriatric community within Houston,” said Tangie Malone, Aurora Hospice’s Executive Director. “In addition, Dr. Sheikh will also be a valuable educator both to the team at Aurora Hospice and our external area partners. We welcome Dr. Sheikh to our team and look forward to a long relationship with her.”
As a consulting physician, Dr. Sheikh was instrumental in helping Aurora Hospice work with the Joint Commission and successfully complete the survey. During this time it became increasingly clear that extending the offer of Medical Director to Dr. Sheikh would be a great gain for Aurora Hospice.
Comments Director of Business Development Brian Steinberg, “It is not easy to find a physician with the experience and knowledge of Dr. Sheikh. Even more difficult to find is a physician with the level of respect that Dr. Sheikh has garnered over the course of her career. Dr. Sheikh’s acceptance of Medical Director is another step in becoming one of Houston’s premier hospice agencies.”
