Posted by: Julie Briggs
We are pleased to share the appointment of Jeremy Boal, MD, as President of Mount Sinai Downtown. Dr. Boal will oversee the creation and implementation of Mount Sinai Health System’s more than $500 million investment to create Mount Sinai Downtown, which includes a new Mount Sinai Beth Israel (MSBI) and an enhanced New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai. With nearly two decades of experience in patient care and hospital management, Dr. Boal is exceptionally well suited to lead Mount Sinai Downtown.
Dr. Boal, who currently serves as Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of the Mount Sinai Health System, will be promoted to Executive Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer of the Mount Sinai Health System in order to maintain our pursuit of the highest level of clinical excellence for all our patients. The transition will start immediately, and Dr. Boal will fully assume his new roles in January 2017.
Prior to his current role, Dr. Boal served as Chief Medical Officer for the North Shore-LIJ Health System (now Northwell Health), where he was responsible for quality and safety across the system’s hospitals, ambulatory practices, home care, and sub-acute and long-term care facilities. He was also responsible for the management of clinical, educational, research, and operational matters related to medical and clinical affairs. A board certified internist with additional certification in geriatrics, Dr. Boal began his career as a resident at Mount Sinai nearly 25 years ago.
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Boal to his new roles.
