Pediatric Health Educator at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, Inc.

Founded in 1852, The Mount Sinai Hospital is a 1,171-bed, tertiary-care teaching facility acclaimed internationally for excellence in clinical care. U.S. News & World Report ranks Mount Sinai among the top hospitals nationwide. Mount Sinai also ranks in several specialties, and is top 10 in three of those: Geriatrics (#4), Gastroenterology (#9), and Ear, Nose & Throat (#10). The opening years of the 21st century found The Mount Sinai Medical Center struggling financially, but by the end of the Hospital’s 150th anniversary celebration in 2002/2003, steps had already been taken to chart a new course. In January 2003, Kenneth L. Davis, MD, Mount Sinai Class of 1973, was named Dean of the School of Medicine. On March 24th he was also named President and CEO of The Mount Sinai Medical Center. Four years later the two offices were split and Dennis S. Charney, MD became Dean. In 2010 the School reached a milestone when the Middle States Commission granted Mount Sinai initial accreditation to be a free-standing entity that would grant its own degrees – something the founders of the School had envisioned 50 years previously. In 2012 the name of the School was changed to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, to honor the lifetime generosity of Trustee Carl Icahn to Mount Sinai. That same year Mount Sinai celebrated the opening of a new clinical and research facility, the Leon and Norma Hess Center for Science and Medicine.

Asset class exposure is achieved primarily by selecting and engaging external managers.
