Meet Dr. Aiken – Hospitalist

Dr. Aiken serves on the Medical Executive Committee, MEC, as a hospital representative.  In this role Dr. Aiken hopes to help foster an open relationship between SRMC administration and its medical staff, while developing policies and procedures to maintain and improve the quality of our patient care.  In addition, he hopes to help communicate the availability of the wonderful services we have at SRMC to the community physicians.
