Beebe Healthcare is pleased to announce the appointment of Jimmy Chua, MD, to the hospital’s medical staff. He is recognized as an award-winning infectious disease specialist, trained to treat a wide range of complex clinical conditions.
He sees patients at the Margaret H. Rollins Lewes Campus and Beebe Medical Group’s Infectious Disease & Travel Medicine office on Savannah Road.
Dr. Chua treats all forms of surgical infection, along with complicated skin and soft tissue infections, HIV infection, sexually transmitted diseases, pneumonia, endocarditis, osteomyelitis, meningitis, sepsis, viral hepatitis, and other infections related to the liver. He also addresses all forms of infection related to viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites. Dr. Chua is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians (ACP), the Infectious Diseases Society of America, and the American Association of the Study of Liver Diseases.
Dr. Chua’s clinical and leadership experience is extensive. In 2001, he founded a medical practice in southeastern Washington, at which time he launched the annual “What’s New in Medicine” regional medical education conference for medical practitioners. The Washington Chapter of the ACP repeatedly recognized Dr. Chua as a role model and ultimately honored him with their Internist of the Year Award in both 2005 and 2023, citing his excellent clinical skills, dedication to patients, enthusiasm for the practice of medicine, and outstanding leadership.
Additionally, the ACP presented Dr. Chua its Laureate Award, an honor presented to senior physicians with acknowledged excellence and peer approval in the field of internal medicine. Dr. Chua also served as a faculty member at the Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences and at the WSU Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine.
“My motto in practice is to do my best with God’s guidance, to help each patient manage and overcome their medical condition,” said Dr. Chua, who was born and raised in Manila, Philippines. “I am grateful for the opportunity to practice medicine at Beebe, which allows me to live in close proximity to my family.”
Dr. Chua earned his medical degree from the University of Santo Tomas, recognized as the oldest university in Asia. After practicing in Manila, he relocated to Marshfield, Wisconsin to pursue internal medicine residency training at the Marshfield Clinic. His clinical training concluded at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, where he completed fellowships in both infectious disease and clinical microbiology.
In his free time, Dr. Chua enjoys swimming, traveling with his family, taking care of his aquarium, harvesting his vegetable garden, listening to audiobooks, and playing chess. He speaks multiple languages including English, Tagalog, Mandarin, Taiwanese, and Spanish.
