HAMILTON, N.Y. — The Community Memorial Hospital (CMH) network announced it has added a new physician assistant to its orthopedics team.

Jackie Ireland brings more than a decade of experience with specialized support in orthopedic spine surgery to her new role, where she will work alongside Dr. Kamaljeet Banga.

“I chose to join the Community Memorial network because of the close feel of the hospital and orthopedics group,” Ireland said in a news release. “I look forward to providing collaborative care with a practice that offers a variety of sub-specialties and superior orthopedic care.”

Ireland holds a bachelor’s degree in biology and a master’s degree in physician-assistant studies from Le Moyne College. She holds certifications with the National Commission on Certifications of Physicians Assistants and is professionally affiliated with the American Academy of Physician Associates and the New York State Society of Physician Assistants.

She joins CMH at its new location for the orthopedic practice in the Center for Specialty Services, 160 Broad St. in Hamilton. The Center for Orthopedic Services moved to the building in early 2024 to meet its needs for expanded patient-care space and a growing team of providers.
