Dr. Philip Ozuah
President and CEO, Montefiore Medicine
Ozuah in 2019 was appointed to lead Montefiore Medicine, which encompasses the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Health System’s 10 member hospitals and more than 200 ambulatory sites. He was instrumental in piloting the organization through the COVID-19 pandemic, which disproportionately affected communities of color, and places a high value on building a culture of inclusivity and respect. He is outspoken about the need for strong partnerships to address the factors contributing to unequal outcomes. To that end, Montefiore offers a wide variety of health improvement programs and activities to the communities it serves, aimed at promoting whole-person wellness.
