President, Sinai Hospital
Amy Perry is the president of Sinai Hospital and executive vice president of LifeBridge Health. Perry brings a wealth of experience in inpatient and outpatient operations, strategic planning, construction, government affairs, clinical services, facilities, property management, capital deployment, marketing and human resources to her position. This knowledge and capability translates into exemplary care for patients.
Before coming to Sinai Hospital, Perry served as senior vice president and chief operating officer of Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, Florida. This 672-bed, not-for-profit independent academic medical center has two campuses, including the main hospital and one large satellite center with a free-standing emergency department, cancer institute, imaging, free-standing cardiac catheterization laboratory and physician offices. Perry worked to successfully position Mount Sinai Medical Center as a regional referral leader in a very competitive market.
The medical center was named one of US News & World Report’s Best Hospitals for geriatrics; it also participated in vital National Institutes of Health funded research in cancer, cardiology, Alzheimer’s disease and pulmonary medicine. These efforts have made significant advancements in immediate and long-term patient care.
Since Perry’s arrival in March of this year, she has been focused on the finalization of the LifeBridge Health strategic plan and implementation schedule. Health care is undergoing dramatic change as the Affordable Care Act is further rolled out and as Maryland renegotiates its waiver program with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Perry is preparing the organization for the future – partnering with physician leaders to build destination clinical programs; working with management to achieve our triple aim of quality, customer service and cost efficiency; and connecting with board, donors and community leaders to ensure the furtherance of our mission.
In 2010, Perry was profiled in ABC 10 News’ “Breaking Barriers” series, which focused on women who have made significant contributions to the workforce. She was interviewed about her role at Mount Sinai Medical Center, and what drew her to work in health care. “I really love how complex health care is,” she says. “You can always make it better; there’s always a new opportunity, a new problem to solve, a new opportunity to improve the way we provide health care.” Perry is leading Sinai Hospital during a time of great change – and opportunity – within the health care industry.
