Dr. Matthew Upton joined the Thomas Health team 6 years ago as the Chief Medical and Chief Medical Information Officer. However, he was no stranger to Thomas Health as he rounded on the Thomas Memorial Campus; checking on patients from his Dunbar Medical Practice for 20 years prior.

In his spare time, he enjoys going to his cabin in the hills of Virginia with his wife and black lab, Tucker.

He chose to join the Thomas Health team to help make a difference in the lives of our patients and the staff who care for them. He has spearheaded projects like the new Patient Portal, which stream lines access between hospital records and our physician offices.

“Thomas Health has had a year unlike any other I have experienced. I am proud of the dedicated staff who make this a great place to work.”
