Hoxworth Blood Center is welcoming a new chief medical officer. David Oh, MD, assumes that role on Oct. 30, 2017, taking over for the recently retired Patricia Carey, MD.
Oh brings more than 15 years of experience in blood banking medical oversight to Hoxworth. For the past four years, Oh served as medical director at Stanford Blood Center in California. Prior to that, he served for nine years as the medical director of the San Diego Blood Bank and for two years as the associate medical director of the American Red Cross Blood Services in the Western Lake Erie Region.
"Dr. Oh’s expertise will help us support and strengthen the services we provide to patients and donors in the Tri-State,” says Ronald Sacher, MD, Hoxworth Blood Center director, and professor in the Department of Internal Medicine at the UC College of Medicine. "He brings many attributes to the senior leadership of Hoxworth and will play a key role in our clinical and strategic efforts going forward.”
Oh, a Wisconsin native, graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and received his medical degree from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine. Following a five-year residency in anatomic and clinical pathology at the Cleveland Clinic, he completed a blood banking/transfusion medicine fellowship at the BloodCenter of Wisconsin/Medical College of Wisconsin.
Oh will have a faculty appointment as an associate professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the UC College of Medicine.
