Additionally, we are pleased to announce that Dr. Jubin Jacob, a highly qualified Interventional Radiologist will serve as the Chair of the ACH Radiology Department, supported by St. Lawrence’s extensive network of remote radiologists. Dr. Jacob will be relocating to Auburn and establishing local residency to support ACH community as part of the St. Lawrence Radiology team.

He completed his Diagnostic Radiology residency at Yale New Haven Health, Bridgeport, CT and Fellowship training in Vascular and Interventional Radiology from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. He is experienced in providing the full spectrum of Interventional and Diagnostic Radiology services, with special interests in peripheral vascular disease, thromboembolic disease, Interventional Oncology, and breast imaging. He has practiced at local healthcare systems including Kaleida Health, WMC Health, Rochester Regional Health and other St. Lawrence affiliated hospitals in NY and ME, as well as Baptist Medical Centers in Alabama.
