Dr. Maya Hogg, a leading hospitalist, has been appointed chief of medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital and vice chair in the Weill Department of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine, effective Oct. 1.
As chief of medicine, Dr. Hogg will oversee inpatient and outpatient medical treatment at the hospital. She will increase patients’ access to high-quality care from skilled internists and specialists with a focus on health equity, recruit and develop faculty, and prioritize provider wellness and satisfaction.
“Dr. Hogg is an outstanding physician and a dedicated leader in her field,” said Dr. John Leonard, interim chair of the Weill Department of Medicine and interim physician-in-chief at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. “She is an ideal choice for the chief of medicine position as we continue to drive excellence and innovation in the delivery of care to serve the Lower Manhattan patient community and beyond.”
Dr. Hogg succeeds Dr. Renuka Gupta, who served in the role from July 2020 to August 2023. Dr. Gupta continues to serve as an adjunct associate professor of clinical medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine.
Dr. Hogg joined the faculty of Weill Cornell Medicine in 2017 as an assistant professor of medicine in the Division of General Internal Medicine and served as a hospitalist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital. Since 2019, she has held various leadership roles at NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital.
“I’m excited and honored to take on these new roles,” Dr. Hogg said. “NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital is a unique hospital with world-class internists and specialists focused on providing excellent, individualized care to patients. It has always embraced community spirit, innovation and collaboration. I look forward to continuing to foster those values to keep the hospital at the forefront of medical health care.”
Most recently, as site chief of hospital medicine, Dr. Hogg co-designed the hospital’s medicine-surgery co-management service, improving communication and efficiencies between medical and surgical teams. Implemented in July 2023, the program involves hospitalists collaborating with surgeons to manage patients undergoing complex surgeries, including neurosurgery and orthopedic and vascular procedures. Dr. Hogg also championed quality improvement initiatives, such as reducing 30-day readmission rates.
Dr. Hogg has served in leadership roles in several interdisciplinary committees, including the Quality and Patient Safety Committee and Patient Flow Committee, and participated in recruiting and selecting two additional assistant site chiefs, expanding the facility’s leadership team. She also served as a subcommittee member of the Weill Department of Medicine’s Racial Justice and Equity Taskforce.
