Jagasia Named President & CEO of Ascension Saint Thomas Hospital, Midtown and West Campuses


 
Shubhada Jagasia, MD, MMHC

On April 19, Ascension Saint Thomas announced the conclusion of an extensive national search with the selection of local candidate Shubhada Jagasia, MD, MMHC, as president and CEO of Ascension Saint Thomas Hospital, Midtown and West campuses.

Beginning her new role on May 1, Jagasia succeeds Fahad Tahir, as he assumes his new system role as chief strategy officer for Ascension Saint Thomas.

Jagasia, who most recently served as chief of staff for the Adult Hospital and Ambulatory Clinics at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, brings nearly 30 years of clinical and healthcare administration experience to her new position. At VUMC, she successfully led the COVID service line as part of the pandemic response, created an innovative discharge and transitions program, and developed a patient and caregiver-centered end-of-life program. Jagasia moved to Tennessee in 1994 to complete a postdoctoral fellowship at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis after graduating from King Edward Memorial Medical College in Mumbai, India. She relocated to Nashville for her Internal Medicine residency, which she completed on the Ascension Saint Thomas Hospital Midtown and West campuses through the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. She continued her clinical training at VUMC with a fellowship in Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism. Jagasia also obtained a Masters of Management in Health Care from the Owen Graduate School of Management.

"Dr. Jagasia will be a tremendous asset to our ministry as we continue to drive innovation within healthcare," said Tim Adams, president and CEO, Ascension Saint Thomas. "Dr. Jagasia will lead and enhance our already strong associate and clinician engagement across service lines within both facilities while providing Middle Tennesseans with world-class care. Additionally, she plans to continue her endocrinology work as a part of our medical staff."
