LifeBridge Health Executive Rebecca Altman promoted to new role as Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Sinai Hospital and Grace Medical Center




Baltimore, MD
— Rebecca Altman has been promoted to the position of vice president and chief operating officer of Sinai Hospital of Baltimore and Grace Medical Center. In her new role, Altman will focus on the daily operations of these two LifeBridge Health medical facilities. Altman previously served as vice president and chief integration officer, including leading the health system’s acquisition and ongoing renovations and transformation of Grace Medical Center (formerly Bon Secours Hospital) in West Baltimore.

“Rebecca brings a wealth of healthcare expertise and experience, as well as deep understanding our health system and our priorities, so I am enormously enthusiastic about her new role in leading us in our day-to-day operations at Sinai and Grace, and positioning us to move forward with our key initiatives,” says Daniel Blum, president of Sinai Hospital and Grace Medical Center, and senior vice president of LifeBridge Health. “I am highly confident that Rebecca will be instrumental in our efforts to be the very best place to receive care and the very best place to work.”

Over the last three years, Altman has spearheaded the transformation of healthcare delivery in West Baltimore with the transition of Bon Secours Hospital to Grace Medical Center. This acquisition and transition are part of LifeBridge Health’s $85 million commitment to enhance and expand the facility and the services it provides to the West Baltimore community. Altman managed the opening of a brand-new emergency department as well as primary care and specialty clinics, surgery suite and operating rooms. Altman, after hearing the needs of the community, also expanded medical services to include OB/GYN, pediatrics, ophthalmology and orthopedics at the Grace location.

In spring of 2021, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan appointed Altman to be an advisor to the Health Equity Resource Community (HERC) Advisory Committee, and she chairs the data subcommittee for the HERC. The Daily Record newspaper named Altman one of its 2021 “Top 100 Women.”
