Dr. Tinisha Cheatham brings her expertise as a practicing family medicine physician to her position as Physician in Chief of the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group for the Baltimore Metropolitan Area.
Cheatham is responsible for the care the group delivers across the Baltimore metropolitan area to more than 140,000 members at Kaiser Permanente’s integrated outpatient medical centers, contracted hospitals and affiliated skilled nursing facilities.
In 2021, she was recognized as a Leader in Diversity by the Baltimore Business Journal.
“Every day we continue to work together to deliver the best health care in the nation. I’m proud that our efforts to screen for cancers, heart disease and diabetes are saving lives, and we know these diseases have higher rates amongst our Black population. While we are raising the bar on what it means to address health equity, our work is not done,” Cheatham said on a Juneteenth post for the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group’s LinkedIn page this year.
As the COVID-19 vaccine is authorized for more people, Cheatham has been active in outreach to promote it as safe and effective for children.
Cheatham serves on the Maryland Health Care Commission. From 2011 to 2014, she was acknowledged by the National Committee for Quality Assurance Diabetes Recognition Program.
Cheatham is a board-certified family medicine physician who practices throughout the Baltimore service area.0
