Dr. Kenneth Davis
CEO, Mount Sinai Health System
Despite facing significant staffing issues, New York City-based Mount Sinai embarked upon a $2 billion capital campaign, half of which is being funded by donations.
Mount Sinai became the U.S. epicenter for COVID-19 and emerged as a response model.
Davis also has led the move from fee-for-service healthcare to population health and has authored more than 575 medical articles. He is the recipient of the George H.W. Bush Lifetime of Leadership Award from Yale University. He developed the Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment scale, a widely used tool to assess cognitive dysfunction.
Davis speaks: “As new public health threats brew, we need to ensure there is capacity to serve the people of this country, and the people of New York. There is a strong business case for readiness, but it requires a paradigm shift in how we think about the intersection of routine care, unscheduled care, and the health of the populations we serve.”
