Austin Cheng joined Gramercy Surgery Center as the Vice President in September 2019 and was promoted to Chief Executive Officer in February 2020. He previously served as a Business Development Associate as well as a member of the Board of Directors from 2012-2015. During this time, Gramercy Surgery Center expanded from a one-facility ambulatory surgery center to our current two-site operation. Austin is the son of the Founder of Gramercy Surgery Center, Katy Chiang. His vision is for Gramercy Surgery Center to become synonymous with being the premier multi-facility, multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center in New York City.
Austin brings with him prior experience from the New York City healthcare industry as well as recent experience in the legal field—both as a prosecutor and defense attorney for the United States Army and as a prosecutor for the United States Attorney’s Office. Though Austin has chosen to continue leading the company that his mother founded over ten years ago, he still maintains his qualifications to practice law in the states of New York and New Jersey. Austin is a proud alumnus of Union College, Brooklyn Law School, and Cornell University (Executive Masters of Health Administration). He has been recognized as a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives (FACHE) and also holds a certification as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt.
As a teenager, Austin grew up with talk of ambulatory surgery centers around the dinner table; now, his legal training and prior leadership experience from the military position him to ensure the overall future success of the company.
