Joseph Mathew, MD, FACP, FCCP, is an attending physician in the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai Roosevelt (MSSLR) hospitals. He serves as Associate Director of the Intensive Care Unit and the Center for Advanced Medical Simulation (CAMS) and is Director of the Critical Care Ultrasonography Program at MSSLR. Prior to joining the Mount Sinai Health System, Dr. Mathew was Medical Director of the Simulation Center and Respiratory Care Dept. at Winthrop-University Hospital and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Stony Brook University School of Medicine.
Dr. Mathew completed his medical school training at St. George’s University School of Medicine in Grenada and went on to pursue a residency in Internal Medicine at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital. He stayed on at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt as a Chief Medical Resident, overseeing a program of over 160 residents. This was formative year which set the foundation for a career in teaching, simulation, research and administration. He subsequently completed a fellowship in Pulmonary Diseases & Critical Care Medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center in NY. At Beth Israel, he developed his clinical expertise in areas such as advanced bronchoscopy, airway management, and critical care ultrasonography.
Dr. Mathew was recruited to Winthrop-University Hospital, a clinical campus for Stony Brook University School of Medicine. He chaired a Steering Committee which founded a 4,500 sq. ft. state of the art Simulation Center which is host to educational programs for medical students, residents, fellows, attendings, nurses, physician assistants, respiratory therapists and other health care practitioners. He also chaired quality improvement committees which heped reduce central line and urinary catheter related infections. He implemented various cost-saving policies for the Respiratory Care Dept. designed to improve patient care. He was an integral part of the Thoracic Tumor Board at Winthrop, offering advanced bronchoscopic services such as Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) and Electromagnetic Navigational Bronchoscopy to patients with lung pathology. He received the Attending of the Year award from the Department of Medicine at Winthrop in 2012.
