A new year is bringing change to Sinai Hospital and its parent company, LifeBridge Health.
Amy Perry has been named president of Sinai Hospital and executive vice president of LifeBridge Health. Perry will succeed Neil Meltzer, who has been named the new chief executive officer of LifeBridge Health.
Meltzer will succeed Warren A. Green, who is retiring after more than 21 years at the company. Perry will begin transitioning into her new role in March of this year. Meltzer will assume his new role in July.
Perry comes to Baltimore after serving as senior vice president and chief operating officer of Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, Fla. There, she was responsible for all inpatient and outpatient operations, strategic planning, marketing, government affairs, clinical services, facilities, property management, capital deployment and human resources, according to a news release.
“Amy’s more than 20 years of hospital leadership experience will be invaluable in guiding Sinai, as we move into a new era of health care and the challenges that will come with it,” said Meltzer in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming her to the LifeBridge Health family.”
Perry’s arrival comes at the same time that LifeBridge Health named Tressa Springmann its new chief information officer. Springmann will be responsible for ensuring that the information systems and services used by the company will be able to deliver the best care for patients throughout the LifeBridge Health facilities.
“Initially, we will focus on exp-anding use of our electronic medical records to improve electronic acc-ess of patient-care information,” Springmann said in a statement. “This improvement will assist our care providers in managing the care of patients across all of LifeBridge Health.”
Before coming to LifeBridge, Springmann was the CIO at Greater Baltimore Medical Center and also worked for Integrated Health Systems, a chain of nursing homes headquartered in Sparks.
