United Digestive, a leading physician practice management company focused on gastroenterology, today announced John Suh, MD, MPH as its new chief medical officer (CMO). Founding CMO, Steven J. Morris, MD, will remain on the organization’s board of directors.
“It has been a privilege to work under the leadership of Dr. Morris over the years, and I’m pleased that our work together will continue. I am honored and humbled to serve United Digestive in this way, and I am so proud to be a part of this organization,” said John Suh, MD. “As chief medical officer, I will work tirelessly to support our teams in delivering the highest quality care for our patients.”
Suh joined Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates, an affiliated practice of United Digestive, in 2008 and has held various leadership roles within the organization ever since. He currently serves on United Digestive’s physician executive committee and as the medical director for its Advanced Center for GI Therapeutics.
“We are delighted to welcome Dr. Suh into his new role,” said Mark Gilreath, CEO for United Digestive. “His proven leadership and clinical expertise will build on the strong foundation laid by Dr. Morris over the past 40 years.”
Under Morris’ leadership and vision, Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates started as a two-physician practice and transformed into one of the largest physician-owned GI groups in the country. In addition, he oversaw the practice’s partnership with Frazier Healthcare Partners to form United Digestive in 2018.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside John for more than 12 years,” said Steven J. Morris, MD. “I am confident that his dedication to clinical best practices and focus on patient care will continue the organization’s forward-thinking legacy.”
