Safyer oversees 10 hospitals, 3,000-plus employed physicians and more than 150 health clinics. In January, Safyer wrote a letter that was circulated to the Montefiore community in which he roundly rejected anti-immigrant sentiment and vowed to protect patients, employees and students regardless of immigration status. The letter came three days after President Donald Trump issued an executive order banning immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries. Montefiore also has jumped into risk-based contracts, with 22% of net patient revenue tied to such contracts.
