SINAI HOSPITAL APPOINTS CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER
Sinai Hospital of Baltimore has named Daniel C. Silverman, M.D., as chief medical officer (CMO). It's the first time in the hospital's history that it has a CMO, the result of a long national search.
"I was honored to be asked to assume the new role of chief medical officer," Silverman said. "I am excited to be joining the Sinai family in continuing its long tradition of providing exceptional health care in an environment that embraces a deep and abiding compassion and respect for patients, families and staff, and a great commitment to learning and the advancement of medical knowledge."
Silverman's long list of accomplishments includes CMO of Princeton University, in addition to concurrently serving as the executive director of the school's University Health Services.
He has been associate chairman of the Psychiatry department at Beth Israel Hospital and director of Medical Student Education in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
Besides his Doctor of Medicine degree from Northwestern University and Fellow in Medicine and Psychiatry from Harvard University, Silverman holds a Master of Public Administration degree from Harvard University.
"Dr. Silverman is our first chief medical officer and will be a key member of the executive team," said Neil Meltzer, president and COO of Sinai Hospital and senior vice president of LifeBridge Health. "He brings with him a tremendously strong background in clinical quality and medical leadership. He will be providing a key skill set and knowledge to this organization and be involved in key decisions affecting Sinai Hospital."
