Dr. Josenia Tan Named Medical Director of Pathology at Saratoga Hospital
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY, December 9, 2019 — Dr. Josenia Tan has been named medical director of pathology and laboratory medicine at Saratoga Hospital. She also has been elected chair of the department at the hospital by the Saratoga Hospital medical staff.
Tan came to Saratoga Hospital in 2018 as assistant medical director of pathology and laboratory medicine. Previously, she was an assistant professor and associate chief of laboratory medicine at Boston University School of Medicine and Boston Medical Center.
She heads a team of three anatomic and clinical pathologists. All are members of the faculty in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Albany Med. All also are on the Saratoga Hospital medical staff, assigned full time—and exclusively—to Saratoga Hospital.
“This arrangement is yet another example of the benefits of our affiliation with Albany Med,” said Dr. Richard Falivena, vice president and chief medical and physician integration officer at Saratoga Hospital. “We have the same experienced team in place, providing the same high-quality pathology services—and we have access to an increased breadth of expertise across the Albany Med system.”
The Saratoga Hospital pathologists can now more easily consult on difficult cases with their department colleagues at Albany Med. In addition, their faculty colleagues at Albany Med are available to provide coverage at Saratoga Hospital, if necessary.
Tan earned a medical degree from Far Eastern University Nicanor Reyes Medical Foundation in the Philippines. She then completed a residency in anatomic and clinical pathology and a fellowship in cytopathology, all at Boston University School of Medicine. Tan is board certified in both anatomic and clinical pathology and has subspecialty certification in cytopathology.
