"I have been committed to ensuring Sinai Chicago's national role as a champion and advocate for equity and respect for all, recognizing and appreciating the diversity of cultures in our communities and always putting those we serve as our priority. One of the most cherished privileges I have had as president and CEO is serving our 3,200 inspiring caregivers every day at Sinai. As I turn the reins over to a new leader, I am proud and confident that our work continues, our dedication remains strong, and our mission has never been more important."
