New Chief Medical Officer At Palms West Hospital

Dr. Alex Gumiroff

Dr. Alex Gumiroff has been appointed the new chief medical officer at HCA Florida Palms West Hospital, effective May 15.

After finishing his residency training at New York Presbyterian/Cornell University Lower Manhattan Hospital, Gumiroff relocated to Florida and has been a practicing obstetrician and gynecologist for a federally qualified health center in Fort Myers, caring for the underserved population. During that time, he also supervised the training of medical, physician assistant and nurse practitioner students in both outpatient and inpatient settings.

In 2017, he joined Gulf Coast Medical Center as an associate medical director, where he worked closely with the executive team. After a consolidation of obstetrical services, Gumiroff was appointed ob-gyn chair at HealthPark Medical Center. At the same time, he transitioned from an outpatient practice into an inpatient career, where he had also assumed a position of a clinical site director for the OB Hospitalist Group.

Shortly after, Gumiroff was promoted to system medical director of obstetrical services at Lee Health, where he oversaw services and operations across the five hospitals.

Gumiroff is excited for his upcoming move to southeast Florida with his wife Olga and three children, Roni, Ariella and Jonathan.
