Sinai Hospital president Amy Perry is leaving her post in January after nearly four years to take an executive position with a New Jersey health company.
Perry, who is also executive vice president of LifeBridge Health, the parent company of Sinai, will become CEO of the hospital division and senior vice president of integrated care delivery at Atlantic Health. Her last day with Sinai will be Jan. 20.
Dr. Jonathan Ringo, LifeBridge Health’s chief medical information officer and vice president of clinical transformation, will lead Sinai on an interim basis until a permanent successor is named.
“Amy Perry has accomplished much during her time with us,” LifeBridge Health CEO Neil Meltzer said in a prepared statement. “Amy has overseen many advances in the recent history of our system’s oldest hospital and championed our mission to improve health in the communities we serve. We wish her well in her new role.”
During her tenure as president, Perry helped to promote partnerships with many community organizations such as Park Heights Renaissance and the Safe Streets Program.
She was also instrumental in Sinai maintaining its place among some of the top hospitals on both the local and national scale. U.S. News & World Report currently ranks Sinai as the No. 3 hospital in Maryland, and this year, the magazine rated Sinai’s neurology and neurosurgery programs No. 36 nationally.
Perry came to Sinai in March 2013 from Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, Fla., where she served as senior vice president and chief operating officer.
