Montefiore Health System
Over the past year, Montefiore Health System moved on a number of innovative programs. Among other things, it received approval from the United Network for Organ Sharing--UNOS--to launch a new lung transplant program. Safyer also oversaw Montefiore becoming the first system in New York to successfully use livers with hepatitis C in transplants while patients waited for a match. Safyer has made Montefiore a leader in value-based care, both in the CMS shared-savings program and with the state of New York.
