SCRANTON, PA -- Srikanth Hosur, M.D., has been named assistant chief medical officer of Geisinger-Community Medical Center (G-CMC). Dr. Hosur, a G-CMC critical care specialist for more than a year, will focus on improving patient throughput and clinical quality.

A board-certified critical care and neurocritical care specialist, Dr. Hosur completed his critical care medicine fellowship at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, in 2009.
