RUSM Grad Earns Medical Director Spot at California Nonprofit

January 05, 2015

A Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) graduate recently earned the top medical spot at a California-based nonprofit hospice agency, according to published reports.

Centi Younan, MD, RUSM Class of 1998, will serve as Medical Director for Community Hospice, a Modesto, California-based nonprofit agency founded in 1978 that provides palliative care and support, including charity care, for terminally ill patients.

“Dr. Younan comes to us with extensive education, training and leadership that fully supports our mission of providing compassionate and quality care to the patients and families we serve,” said C. DeSha McLeod, president and chief executive officer for Community Hospice, in a press release.

Before joining Community Hospice, Dr. Younan was a hospitalist at Sutter Memorial Medical Center, Modesto, and was appointed co-medical director of the palliative care department there in 2010. She completed an internship (internal medicine) at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Stamford Hospital, and completed her residency training at UCLA School of Medicine, Kern Medical Center. She also has received training in palliative and end-of-life care.

Dr. Younan is board certified in internal medicine, and is a board-certified Diplomate in hospice and palliative care.
