New York City-based Mount Sinai Health System selected Jeremy Boal, MD, to take over as president of Mount Sinai Downtown and the downsized Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York City, according to a Crain's New York Business report. Mount Sinai Downtown is the result of a $500 million reorganization that includes developing a network of outpatient facilities and physician offices as well as reducing the number of beds at the Beth Israel hospital.

Earlier this month, Mount Sinai Beth Israel President Susan Somerville decided to leave her post, citing her husband's retirement and their plans to pursue new opportunities in the East. She had served as the hospital's president since 2014.

The Beth Israel hospital's bed occupancy is around 400 to 450. The new Mount Sinai Downtown network will include 220 beds. Mount Sinai will also distribute some of Beth Israel hospital's acute-care services throughout the health system. The hospital will, however, retain its emergency department, according to the report.

Dr. Boal currently serves as the health system's executive vice president and CMO. In addition to being president of Mount Sinai Downtown, the health system promoted to him to chief clinical officer. He will assume his new roles in January 2017. Dr. Boal has been with Mount Sinai since 2013, prior to which he was CMO of New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Northwell Health.
