In 2007, two aspiring physicians Dr. Ajjan and Dr. Giordano worked as hospitalists at  Lake Norman Regional  Medical Center. At the time, the group they worked for was short-staffed and the two physicians were working more than 20 days per 28 cycle to cover the hospital needs every month. One day in February 2010, they came up with an innovative idea to start their own hospitalist group to offer flexible, dynamic, and innovative programming. They wanted to create a balance for physicians that join the group so they can maintain life-work balance. They both recognized the importance and need for such a group in their local market. They approached several hospitals in the area and received their first contract at Iredell Memorial Hospital in November 2010 with a start date of January 15, 2011. That day marks the beginning of an amazing journey of ups and downs. A journey that despite all its challenges allowed both physicians to grow personally and professionally.  The group grew from two physicians at one medical facility in November 2010 to 20 medical providers at fourteen medical facilities today. The medical facilities are Iredell Memorial Hospital, Peak Resource Gastonia, Peak Resources Cheryville, Brian Center Gastonia, Brian Center Statesville, Peak Resources Shelby, Short-Term Rehab at Iredell Memorial, Iredell Memorial Wound Care Center, Maple Leaf Statesville, Rosewood Assisted-Living of Statesville, Summit place of Mooresville, Brookdale Churchill of Mooresville, and Carillon Assisted Living of Mooresville.


On October, 2014  Dr. Giordano sold his shares in OptiMed to Dr. Ajjan in order to pursue his dream in aesthetic medicine . Dr. Ajjan’s passion has always been improving hospitalists services for all his business partners. Over the past ten years, Dr. Ajjan has built clinical and managerial experience in hospitalists management and care that gives him the ability to provide quality service with attention to exceptional care. His five-year strategic plan is to continue to grow the operations of OptiMed Hospitalists and further align its growth with the values and mission of the company. His personal commitment to his business partners and medical providers is to build a company that they are all proud to be part of.
