Baltimore, MD - May 2, 2017 - An announcement from Lifebridge Health's President and CEO Neil Meltzer:

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Jonathan Ringo has been named as the President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Sinai Hospital.

As you know, Dr. Ringo brings clinical expertise and a truly thoughtful approach to patient care along with his respect for the hard work and dedication of our LifeBridge Health teams. Dr. Ringo also has extensive hospital operational experience in clinical transformation, IT and population health.

“Sinai Hospital has a 150-year history of service to the community, and I am honored to be chosen to continue that tradition and to lead an amazing team of medical professionals and supporting staff who make sure our patients and their families receive the highest-quality, compassionate care,” says Dr. Ringo.

Dr. Ringo has been serving as Sinai’s interim COO for four months and is passionate about continuing our mission to improve the health of people in the communities we serve. In addition to his responsibilities as president and COO, he will continue to practice as an OB/GYN, including shifts on Sinai’s Labor and Delivery unit and at Sinai Community Care.

“As a doctor, I continue to have the privilege of seeing first-hand the wonderful care our employees provide to our patients and their families. Sinai Hospital truly offers the best of both worlds: the cutting-edge medical therapies and research that you find at an academic medical center, combined with the warm and supportive environment of a community hospital,” adds Dr. Ringo.

Dr. Ringo also has deep personal connections with Sinai as five of his six children, his wife and his mother-in-law were all born here.

Dr. Ringo joined LifeBridge Health in 2014 as the system’s first chief medical information officer from Northwell Health System (formerly North Shore-LIJ Health System) in New York. He then became the vice president of clinical transformation to oversee case management, population health, medical informatics and ambulatory quality at LifeBridge Health.

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Ringo.

We are thrilled to have him as a permanent member of our strong team of LifeBridge Health leaders.
