Dr. Roger Lee Re-Elected to Third Term as Chief of Medical Staff at UCLA Medical Center

Dr. Roger Lee has been re-elected to a third term as chief of medical staff at UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica.

Lee is a “hospitalist” — doctor who specializes in treating patients in the hospital. He co-directs UCLA’s hospitalist program, which cares for patients at UCLA’s Santa Monica hospital, as well as at nearby Providence Saint John’s Health Center and in area nursing homes. He also established the hospitalist consultative service that works closely with orthopaedic surgeons to provide care for their patients undergoing surgery.

“I am honored to serve a third term as chief of staff and look forward to many challenges that lay ahead this year,” Lee said. “Among those challenges will be getting our physicians and hospital ready for our upcoming Joint Commission accreditation survey.”

Lee earned his undergraduate degree from UCLA and medical degree from the University of California, Davis School of Medicine. He completed his residency in internal medicine at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle.

Joining him as officers on the hospital’s 2017 Medical Staff Executive Committee are Drs. Peter Galier and Denise Freese, who were re-elected vice-chief of staff and secretary-treasurer, respectively.

Other physicians on the 13-member committee, which helps oversee medical affairs at the hospital, are Drs. Charles Chandler, David Chen, Jeffrey Eckardt, David Feazell, Daniel Lee, Aldo Palmieri, Anthony Scaduto, Denise Sur, Daniel Uslan and Jeremy Wong.
