Neerav, age 36, has served as administrator of Paradise Valley Hospital since 2011. He was acknowledged for his role in Paradise Valley Hospital's ongoing national recognition for clinical quality and patient safety—Top 100 Hospital, Top 15 Health System and Top Performing Hospital in Key Quality Measures—combined with his continuing efforts to attract new patients and physicians through the addition of the hospital's state-of-the-art San Diego Spine & Joint Center, new cath lab and expanding the hospital's accepted insurance plans.
Jadeja began his career with Gainesville, Fla.-based Shands Healthcare in 2002, where he served as chief operating officer (COO) at Shands Lakeshore in Lake City, Fla., before leaving in 2008. He then served as COO for Murrieta, Calif.-based Southwest Healthcare System's Inland Valley and Rancho Springs Medical Centers.
