AIPNO 2021 President’s Message

Dr Dharmesh MehtaGreetings

My name is Dr Dharmesh Mehta. I am an Internal Medicine Physician working at Atrium Medical Group; a Private Practice on the east side of Cleveland. I am Chief of Staff Elect at Euclid Hospital, Medical Director at Heartland of Willoughby, and a Team Physician with Heartland Hospice.

I am honored and privileged to be the AIPNO president for the year 2021. I am very excited to start this role and looking forward to working with all of you.

AIPNO is a vibrant non-profit organization founded in 1983 geared towards enhancing the quality of healthcare by fostering excellence and professionalism in the practice of medicine and supporting efforts to improve the availability of healthcare.

Our mission is to continue to enhance community involvement and coordinate with other local, national and international organizations through our philanthropy.

We strive to use the resources and knowledge of AIPNO for the health and welfare of the community we serve. I encourage everyone to participate and contribute to the quality healthcare that is accessible and affordable.

We will continue to focus on active participation of young physicians.I request every member to approach friends and colleagues to spread the word about our goals and missions.

AIPNO fosters and encourages participation from high school students, medical students, residents, fellows, faculties, seasoned researchers, allied healthcare providers, community leaders, philanthropic practitioners, dedicated donors and valued beneficiaries alike.

We will continue to conduct educational programs to acquaint the members with clinical, scientific and other developments in the field of medicine.

We will also continue to work on improving our website and expanding our social media network.

In spite of the uncertainties during COVID, we were able to accomplish many of our goals in 2020 and start new initiatives. I am looking forward to continuing those this year. Even with the vaccine, we are uncertain when things will be normal again. As we know more, we will be able to plan the activities for this year accordingly.

AIPNO and our leaders have done an excellent job serving the community over the years. Like those before me, I am deeply committed to serving this noble organization and I look forward to working with all of you.


Dharmesh Mehta, MD
President, AIPNO 2021
