Diana N. Contreras ’83

Diana Contreras is an innovative, solutions-driven leader with a focus on implementing system-wide clinical programs and quality initiatives in women’s health. Striving to achieve cultural change and transformational goals, Contreras is improving women’s health care in her dual role as chairman of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health at both Morristown Medical Center and Atlantic Health System. To execute her vision, Contreras embraces collaboration and consensus-building. As former associate chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU Lutheran Medical Center, she launched a successful robotic surgery program and established new guidelines for quality and safety measures. She has served in progressive positions at Northwell Health’s Long Island Jewish Medical Center, where she was medical director of the hospital’s Ambulatory Surgical Suite. This succeeded her years at North Shore LIJ Health System, where Contreras led the Ambulatory Quality and Evidence-Based Practice in Obstetrics and Gynecology, served as director of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery, and was chosen as division director for the hospital’s Gynecologic Oncology Department. A cancer specialist at heart, she started her career as a gynecologic oncologist at Texas Tech Medical in Lubbock Texas after attaining her fellowship training in gynecologic oncology from Loyola University Medical Center in Illinois. She performed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at University of Minnesota Hospital and her general surgery internship at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. She is dual board-certified in both gynecology oncology and obstetrics and gynecology. She serves on a number of national committees including the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and she maintains an affiliation with NYU Medical School as an associate clinical professor. When she is not influencing the future of healthcare, Contreras enjoys hiking in the National Parks with her husband and two children.
