Understanding patients’ health needs and placing them at the center of their care is what the medical staff at The University of Toledo Medical Center does. As the newly appointed chief of staff for UTMC, cardiologist Dr. Samer Khouri is continuing the work of the medical staff that aims to support and promote safe, high-quality patient care.

“The medical staff at the UT Medical Center is made up of a group of highly skilled and talented individuals who are dedicated to their patients and the service they provide,” Khouri said. “In order to provide this top level of patient care, I believe that open and direct communication needs to happen between the medical staff and leadership, and vice versa, so needs and goals are known and met.”

Khouri, who began his chief of staff appointment July 1, has been a member of the medical staff at UT since 2002. He is the Adela and Alfred Mundt Endowed Professor of Medicine, associate chair of medicine for quality and associate chief of cardiovascular medicine.

Board-certified in cardiology and heart failure, Khouri is a 1992 graduate of Damascus University. He was a research assistant at Krannert Institute of Cardiology at Indiana University, and finished his internal medicine residency at Indiana University in 1998. He completed his fellowship at Ohio State University in 2002 and earned his MBA from UT in 2016.

During his tenure at UT, Khouri has led the non-invasive cardiology labs and helped develop the heart failure and left ventricle assist device (LVAD) programs at UTMC. He is a member of the board of directors of the University of Toledo Physicians practice, and is a member of the board of directors of the American College of Cardiology, Ohio chapter. Khouri also is a member of the Med Executive Committee of the Rehabilitation Hospital of Northwest Ohio, Earnest Health.
