Marc E. Agronin, MD

Senior Vice President, Behavioral Health and Chief Medical Officer for MIND Institute

Dr. Marc Agronin leads Miami Jewish Health’s MIND Institute, which provides a wide range of services for individuals with memory changes, Alzheimer’s disease, and all other neurocognitive disorders, along with associated mood and behavior disturbances. He is the driving force in the development of Miami Jewish Health’s EmpathiCareSM philosophy and the future EmpathiCareSM Village.

Dr. Marc Agronin has been part of Miami Jewish Health since 1999. He is a leading expert in Alzheimer’s disease and geriatric mental health issues, and a nationally-sought author and speaker. Agronin has written 10 books, including the critically acclaimed The End of Old Age: Living a Longer, More Purposeful Life (2018), How We Age: A Doctor’s Journey into the Heart of Growing Old (2011), and The Dementia Caregiver: A Guide to Caring for Someone with Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Neurocognitive Disorders (2016).

Dr. Agronin oversees all behavioral health services at Miami Jewish Health, and personally sees all patients and subjects at MIND Institute, whether being evaluated for cognitive changes or participating in a clinical trial. He believes in practicing medicine the way he saw his grandfather tend to patients for over 50 years in a small Midwestern town, with total dedication and personal, empathic attention.

“Placing myself in the shoes of our clients and residents, I try to imagine how they feel to create understanding and trust. This allows me and our team to give them purpose and meaning, improving their quality of life.”

Agronin was named the 2008 Clinician of the Year by the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry, is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry, and was the recipient of the Excellence in Research and Education Award by LeadingAge.
