Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) has named Victor Filadora, MD, MBA, as Chief of Clinical Services. In this new role, Dr. Filadora, an anesthesiologist first appointed to the Institute’s medical staff in 2003, is responsible for managing the comprehensive cancer center’s Ambulatory Services, Perioperative Services, Sterile Processing, Pharmacy, Patient and Family Experience, Endoscopy Services and Therapeutic Services programs, and will also provide leadership and guidance to clinical department administrators throughout the Institute.
Dr. Filadora continues in his roles as Clinical Chief of Perioperative Medicine and Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education at Roswell Park and a Clinical Assistant Professor within the Department of Anesthesiology at the University at Buffalo (UB).
“Since we first recruited him to Roswell Park a decade ago to establish our preoperative services program, Dr. Filadora has led the design and implementation of several key clinical projects,” says Roswell Park President and CEO Candace Johnson, PhD. “His experience and his thoughtful, strategic, patient-centered approach make him an outstanding match for this new opportunity.”
Dr. Filadora joined RPCI in 2003 from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, where he served as Chief Resident for the Department of Anesthesiology. He served on the staff of Newton-Wellesley Hospital and the Tufts University School of Medicine faculty from 2004 to 2005, at which point he returned to RPCI as Chief of Perioperative Medicine and Director of the Center for Preoperative Evaluation.
A member of RPCI’s Medical Staff Executive Committee, he serves on the UB School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences’ Faculty Council and its Resident Grievance, Graduate Medical Education and Anesthesiology Admissions committees, and is a Senior Business and Healthcare Advisor to the UB School of Management.
An accredited Royal College of Physicians educator, Dr. Filadora has helped lead several collaborative projects involving the UB School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and UB School of Management. He frequently extends his expertise in perioperative services as a consultant to health-care systems in the areas of operations and governance. ■
