Dr. Rajesh Mohan Resigns as Chief Medical Officer of Lakewood’s MMCSC

Dr. Rajesh Mohan, Chief Medical Officer of Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus, has resigned from his position, despite a stellar record and achieving a stunning turnaround of the hospital’s performance and prospects moving forward.

Dr. Mohan is credited with working with the medical staff, nursing and hospital staff to significantly improve patient care at the hospital, while improving MMCSC’s finances with positive results. Since implementing his patient-centered strategies, which included improving cardiovascular services with advanced technologies like FFR-CT having been added to the hospital’s repertoire, MMCSC has seen growth in patient services as well as a financial turnaround.

His determination towards the development of a patient-centered culture at MMCSC is believed to have been the reason for the hospital and it’s staff to be able to manage the unexpected onslaught of COVID-19 so commendably.

Dr. Mohan, who assumed the CMO position in 2017, has recently published a book, COVIDSLAYERS (available on Amazon) that laid bare the dysfunction and profit-over-patient-care attitude that guided much of the healthcare system in the United States over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, with physicians and nurses trying to overcome hurdles to take care of patients on a regular basis in the best possible way, safely, while finding themselves mostly at odds with non-frontline healthcare administrators and politicians. Dr. Mohan lays out how administrators, politicians, and others in positions of power with misplaced priorities, incompetence, and deep insecurities used job-preservation tactics to advance their own agenda, at the expense of the well-being of patients and communities.

The same mishandling of the pandemic crisis is now being seen in the bungled rollout of Covid-19 vaccines, Dr. Mohan says. In COVIDSLAYERS, he advocates that for the healthcare system to change for the better, the apathy, lack of knowledge and arrogance among non-medical administrators and politicians must be replaced with active physician leaders and clinical nurse leaders who not only have an ongoing experience and knowledge of reality and challenges on the frontlines but the wisdom and will to achieve positive, timely and efficient results. Otherwise, people in power will continue their misguided actions or dwell in their inaction, perpetuating suffering and damage to people and communities.

  1. Id say he probably was asked to resign because he called out the truth instead of going along with these democrat reasonings and false facts.At least there are still some medical professionals that have a backbone arent scared to call out baloney for what it is.

  2. A one payer system will solve many of the healthcare problems we face. Insurance companies only do one thing. They move money. They collect premiums and pay out claims. They make billions of dollars doing this. These monies should be used to pay primary care physicians a higher per office visit reimbursement. Some insurance payers pay as little as $45 for a visit to a physician. It’s no wonder most people going into medicine choose to become a specialist where the reimbursement rate is much higher. In addition insurance companies very often deny claims adding additional work on the administrators side of doctors offices to collect the money they are owed. Medicare for all paying all pcp’s A fair fee for services rendered.

    • Very true.
      People don’t realize how much the for profit healthcare system drags society down. It does not increase life expectancy, and it makes life so much more difficult for all of us. Imagine not worrying about networks, not having to buy health insurance if you are self-employed, not having to put together money for every medical procedure.
      Health insurance wastes money all over the place, people are hired to refuse claims. Those salaries, to the tune of billions of dollars, can be saved.
