Dr. Ladan Golestaneh, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine (Nephrology), recently received the DaVita Core Value Award for Continuous Improvement for her outstanding quality work as medical director of Montefiore's Bedford Park Dialysis unit.

Dr. Golestaneh holds various administrative positions within the Division of Nephrology and Department of Medicine and is a steward for healthcare quality delivery. Her research interests include acute kidney injury (AKI) and the cardio-renal syndrome. Her recent research interests include care delivery models for end-stage renal disease patients, a project in which she collaborates with the Montefiore CMO.

Dr. Golestaneh received an MD from New York Medical College in 1999. She completed internship and residency at Montefiore Medical Center in 2002 and a nephrology fellowship at Einstein in 2004.

Following fellowship, Dr. Golestaneh was hired as clinical instructor in the Einstein Division of Nephrology, where she set up the first critical care/nephrology subspecialty at Montefiore Einstein and introduced continuous dialysis therapies at Montefiore. She was promoted to assistant professor in 2005 and associate professor in 2012, and became medical director of the inpatient dialysis unit in 2005, medical director of Bedford Park Dialysis unit in 2008, and medical director of the home program at the Williamsbridge dialysis unit in 2014.

Dr. Golestaneh was recognized for going above and beyond her standard duties in exemplifying continuous improvement. "As an active member of her hospital's ACO, [Dr. Golestaneh] is open to piloting new ideas and she also initiates pilots of her own. She fully challenges the status quo on care delivery and she always does this with a kind but firm manner," said Elise Duke, DaVita Division Vice President.
