Vivek Sinha, M.D., has been named medical director at Silverado Alexandria, a memory care community serving individuals living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. For over 15 years, Dr. Sinha has cared for families as a concierge-style primary care physician with Belleview Medical Partners, the practice he co-founded. He is a physician consultant for the Alexandria Public School System and serves as a Medical Officer with Maryland’s Federal Disaster Medical Team.
Silverado’s medical director role is unique in the industry. Many assisted and independent living organizations have only one medical director for the region, or for the entire company. Each Silverado memory care community has a medical director involved directly in the education and training of associates to ensure a consistently remarkable level of care for residents and patients.
“Dr. Sinha is passionate about delivering the best, individualized care for his patients. He understands the needs of our memory care residents and hospice patients, and we look forward to his leadership,” shares Katie Hilburn, M.S. Administrator at Silverado Alexandria.
“I have seen first-hand how Silverado’s method of memory care has helped many residents and patients. When you combine compassionate, caring people together with a company that is built on placing patients first, amazing things happen,” said Dr. Sinha. “I am thrilled to be working alongside the Silverado team and look forward to helping provide first-class memory
care right here in Alexandria.”
Dr. Sinha originally hails from Long Island, New York. He worked as a firefighter and emergency medical technician before following in his father’s footsteps to become a family doctor. Dr. Sinha earned his medical degree at the Saba University School of Medicine, and completed his residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital at Northwestern University in Chicago. At Northwestern University, he was named Chief Resident. Dr. Sinha also received the 2008 Family Medicine Teaching Attending Physician of the Year Award.
