Singh named chief clinical officer at Hudson Regional Hospital

Dr. Vijayant Singh has been named chief clinical officer and vice president of network development of Hudson Regional Hospital in Secaucus, it was announced this week.

Singh will support the fast-growing hospital’s 55 Meadowland Parkway flagship and its support network as it continues to add practice areas and services, including most recently affiliating with the OneMD practices in Hudson and Bergen counties.

Singh, a board-certified internist, a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and a certified Physician Executive with an MBA in health care management, has been a careerlong member of the Hudson County health care community, beginning with his years in training at RWJBarnabas Health’s Jersey City Medical Center and then as he rose through various leadership roles at CarePoint Health, including chief hospital executive for Bayonne Medical Center and executive vice president for strategy and clinical transformation.

Singh and HRH CEO Nizar Kifaieh have been associated for more than a decade.

“I’m glad for the opportunity to work with Dr. Singh again,” Kifaieh said. “He will fulfill the critical role of CCO with a singular focus in a key position that will allow (board Chair Yan) Moshe and I to continue building our health care network to its full potential.”

In five years of operating Hudson Regional Hospital, its team has received praise and recognition from throughout the health care industry, including being accorded the prestigious Leapfrog “A” designation in 2022.  It was the first hospital in the world to receive Surgery Review Corp.’s recognition for Excellence in Spine Surgery. The hospital also has had eight doctors on the New Jersey Top Doctors list and has been a Castle Connelly Top Hospital since 2020.

“I share Dr. Nizar Kifaieh’s and Yan Moshe’s vision for elevating HRH’s efforts and direction to improve and build a high-performing health care network in Hudson County,” Singh said. “I have closely observed the hospital’s emergence over the past five years as a leader in quality and innovation in Hudson County, and I am excited to be part of this robust organization that continues to undergo clinical integration and transformation while not losing track of the social determinants of health and behavioral health.”
