BALTIMORE (Nov. 30, 2023) — Westgate Hills Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Baltimore has appointed Kamal Sewaralthahab, MD, as its medical director. The 120-bed skilled nursing facility, which is supported by Marquis Health Consulting Services, provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care.
Dr. Sewaralthahab is board certified in nephrology. Previously, he served as the director of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Management programs at two regional skilled nursing facilities, Orchard Hill Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Towson and Meadow Park Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Catonsville.
