Trinity Health has welcomed Sashi Kuppala, MD, MS, to its care team in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Dr. Kuppala, a neonatologist, is double board certified in neonatology and general pediatrics.
Dr. Kuppala graduated from Rangaraya Medical College in India, where he earned both his primary medical degree and post-graduate diploma in child health. His early training led him in the direction of neonatology. “What stuck with me is that in the NICU, you’re supporting the life of a human being who could very well go on to make an enormous contribution to human achievement.”
He completed his pediatric residency at Cleveland Clinic and his fellowship in neonatology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. To enhance his expertise in quality assurance he later earned a Master of Science in Healthcare Quality and Safety Management from Thomas Jefferson University in Pennsylvania.
Dr. Kuppala has practiced at hospitals in Kentucky and Indiana and served two years as medical director for Signature Care Network Health Insurance. Most recently, he was staff neonatologist and medical director of the NICU at The Women’s Hospital in Newburgh, Indiana.
An avid hiker and mountain climber, Dr. Kuppala and his wife, Kavita, who is also a physician, have a daughter and son.
