Senior Vice President
Chief Nursing Executive | Chief Operating Officer, Perioperative Services
As one of the most trusted professions, nursing has a profound impact on patient and family well-being and the health of our communities. I am extremely proud of our dedicated and extremely talented nurses at NewYork-Presbyterian. They embody Magnet® principles every day as they care for our patients and their families with clinical proficiency, with compassion, and with a strong personal commitment to putting our patients first.
Nurses at NewYork-Presbyterian have a tremendous opportunity to engage, inspire and contribute to extraordinary patient care in collaboration with their interprofessional colleagues and each other. They continue to drive nursing excellence through a culture of continuous learning, inquiry and research. Through nurses’ words and deeds, their contributions are apparent every day in the care they deliver and the outcomes they achieve. Our nurses are supported by a team of highly dedicated transformational nurse leaders who promote shared governance structures that enhance the voice of nurses at NewYork-Presbyterian.
We invite you to explore the ways in which NewYork-Presbyterian nurses contribute to our continued excellence through their achievements and influence. I am inspired every day by these amazing nurses and it is my privilege to lead such a dedicated group of professionals.
