Local cardiologist to leave practice, Mary Lanning board position
Dr. Pradipta Chaudhuri announced today his resignation from the Mary Lanning Board of Trustees effective November 30. He will be relocating from Hastings and leaving his longtime cardiology practice.
“I am saddened to announce my departure from the practice of medicine in the Hastings community. Due to personal family needs, we will be relocating to Ohio,” Dr. Chaudhuri said. “I have been greatly enriched as a physician and a person caring for patients at Mary Lanning and serving on the Board of Trustees. I will miss the patients and my colleagues at NHI and Mary Lanning.”
Dr. Chaudhuri was appointed to the Mary Lanning Board of Trustees in June 2011.
Mary Lanning will continue to meet the needs of its patients, said Dr. Michael Skoch, Mary Lanning Chief Medical Officer.
“We are grateful for Dr. Chaudhuri’s contributions over the past decade and will continue his focus in providing cardiovascular care to those we serve,” Dr. Skoch said.
Dr. Chaudhuri has been an outstanding member of the Mary Lanning team and he will be missed, said Mark Callahan, Mary Lanning Healthcare Interim President & CEO.
“We have appreciated Dr. Chaudhuri’s leadership among the NHI physicians who practice at Mary Lanning,” Callahan said. Under Chaudhuri’s guidance, Mary Lanning has expanded its cardiac care services over the past decade.
“We wish Dr. Chaudhuri well as he and his family start a new chapter in their lives,” Callahan said.
“The entire board is appreciative of Dr. Chaudhuri’s work and contributions to the hospital and the community,” said Jeff Anderson, Mary Lanning Board of Trustees Chairman.
Dr. Chaudhuri, a cardiologist with the Nebraska Heart Institute clinic located in the Medical Services Building on the Mary Lanning campus and headquartered in Lincoln, has lived in Hastings for more than 10 years. He has been actively involved in many medical, professional and community service organizations.
