Biography

    Dr. Jeremy Boal is Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of the Mount Sinai Health System.
     
    Prior to that he held the position of Chief Medical Officer for the North Shore LIJ Health System.  In that capacity he had overall responsibility for quality and safety in the health systems’ 16 hospitals, hundreds of ambulatory practices, home care, sub-acute and long term care facilities as well as the overall professional management of clinical, education, research and operational issues related to medical and clinical affairs.  During his tenure as CMO, the health system saw markedly improved performance in critical areas including hospital acquired harm, mortality due to sepsis, ambulatory access-to-care, and improved relationships between medical staff leaders and their constituents.
     
    From May, 2007 until December, 2010 he served as Medical Director of the Long Island Jewish Medical Center – a 983 bed medical center encompassing Long Island Jewish hospital, the Cohen Children’s Medical Center, and the Zucker Hillside Psychiatric Hospital.
     
    Prior to his tenure at North Shore LIJ, Dr. Boal was on faculty of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where he served as Vice Chair for strategic planning and faculty practice services for the Department of Medicine. In that role, he was responsible for the care in all of the Department of Medicine’s faculty practices. He also was Executive Director of Mount Sinai’s Visiting Doctors Program that provides in-home primary care to more than 1,000 homebound people each year—a program that he co-founded.
     
    A board-certified internist with additional certification in geriatrics, Dr. Boal began his career at Mount Sinai Medical Center as a medical resident in 1994.
     
    He has received many awards and honors for his work including The Alexander Richman Commemorative Award in Humanism and Ethics in Medicine from Mount Sinai School of Medicine (2006), the Humanism and Medicine Award (Mt. Sinai, 2002 and 2000) and in 2013 received the the Edward Meilman Community Service Award from the UJA Foundation of NY.
     
    Dr. Boal received his Medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and a Bachelor of Science degree from McGill University, Montreal, Canada.
