New Emanuel CEO Speaks with Turlock Journal about Focus for Hospital

Dec 16, 2021

NaiduIn November 2021, Murali Naidu, MD, FACS, was appointed as the new CEO of Emanuel Medical Center. He assumed responsibility for all hospital operations, executive planning and directing medical services.

Dr. Naidu joins Emanuel from Doctors Hospital of Manteca, our sister hospital in Manteca, where he has served as CEO since early 2020. 

Dr. Naidu recently spoke with the Turlock Journal about his focus and goals for the hospital. He addressed questions about the pandemic, hospital staffing shortages and where he sees Emanuel going in the future.

“I’m really more than anything, just apprecia­tive of the great team here. And, also from my standpoint, having a clini­cal background being in a fairly unique position as a physician CEO, or gener­ally as a clinician CEO, is so important during this time. You’re right, in healthcare we’re facing so many challenges and the pandemic, as it continues to evolve,” Dr. Naidu told the Turlock Journal.
