My name is Karen Playforth; I joined UK HealthCare from St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital in New York, where I have been since 2001. During my time at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, I completed a residency and fellowship and went on to work as an OB-GYN attending physician.
Prior to that, I completed my undergraduate work at Wellesley College in Wellesley, Mass., and received my medical degree from the UK College of Medicine.
