Lourdes Medical Center is pleased to congratulate Maylin Padayatty, M.D. and Suresh Piryani, M.D. who are now Board Certified in Internal Medicine with a focused practice in Hospital Medicine as recognized by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Lourdes congratulates Dr. Padayatty and Dr. Piryani, who are now Board Certified in Internal Medicine with a focused practice in Hospital Medicine.Dr. Padayatty and Dr. Piryani are two of just 119 physicians in the country with this prestigious certification and the first in our community.

Both physicians are currently associates of Lourdes Medical Center in Hospitalist roles. Hospitalists are physicians who are specialized in the care of patients in the hospital and typically only see patient during their hospital stay.

Both physicians were Board Certified in Internal Medicine. However, the additional attainment of Board Certification with a focused practice in hospital medicine is a major accomplishment for a physician.

“This significant milestone is a demonstration of our medical staff’s commitment to our patients. Both Drs. Padayatty and Piryani want the best possible care for their hospital patients and they wanted to further their education and attain the highest certification possible,”
– John Serle, President & CEO of Lourdes

Janet Wright, Vice President of Patient Care Services added:

“We are delighted that Drs. Padayatty and Piryani have obtained this advanced certification.”
