Congratulations to our SilverSage Physician and Medical Director Dr. Frank Lemes, M.D. for Wahiawa Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (WNRC)

February 1, 2021 Medical Staff

Please help us Congratulate our SilverSage Physician and Medical Director, Dr. Frank Lemes, M.D. who recently obtained his CMD (Certified Medical Director) certification from The Society for Post-Acute and Long Term Care Medicine.

Dr. Lemes joined the Wahiawa General Hospital ‘Ohana as WNRC’s Interim Medical Director back in October 2019.  He has been working with the interdisciplinary team and in collaboration with other attending physicians to ensure our residents receive the best quality care and services here at WNRC.

Dr. Lemes was born and raised in Northern California, but his roots run deep in the islands.  His family are descendants of Portuguese plantation workers who came to Kauai in the 1880’s and later moved to Oahu.  His grandfather, Dr. Albert Lemes, was a well-loved dentist in Honolulu many years ago, as well as a football star at Punahou School and the University of Hawaii.

Dr. Lemes is a Board-Certified Family Physician and graduate of the University of Hawaii Family Medicine Residency Program, after graduating from St. Louis University School of Medicine.  He found his calling in nursing home medicine after starting his career in full spectrum family medicine at a community health center in Hilo, Hawaii.

Dr. Lemes holds a special place in his heart for Wahiawa General Hospital.  He had actually done part of his medical school residency training here and has been happy to be back!  We are thrilled to have him as a member of our team and look forward to the years of partnership with Dr. Lemes and SilverSage Physician Services.
