Prepare to be inspired by your colleagues. From EMTs and pharmacists to security officers and nurse anesthetists, we attract the absolute best in every field for every position. In both clinical and non-clinical work, we are compassionate AND excellent. Quick to embrace challenge. To innovate and empathize. To discover and, most importantly, to listen.
Opportunities to explore new disciplines (and move up the ranks) are virtually limitless. We rely on our empowered and accessible leadership team to set a tone of excellence. That’s why our highest levels of leaders (Dr. Corwin and more) regularly seek insight and feedback.
Meet Dr. Steven J. Corwin, CEO
Our new visionary CEO, Dr. Steven J. Corwin, MD, has taken the helm of NewYork-Presbyterian after serving six years as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the hospital. A nationally recognized healthcare leader, he’s been featured on such programs as NBC's Nightly News.
First joining the hospital in 1986, Dr. Corwin has seen NYP grow from a regional player to a global epicenter. He aims to make us THE world leader.
Dr. Corwin leapt into his new role by conducting a series of town hall meetings and sharing a vision for NYP that raises the bar. To deliver the best for patients and families, he’s launching the next-phase “Capital Plan” for hospital modernization and integrating information systems across all campuses.
Steven J. Corwin, MD, CEO, has once again been named among Modern Healthcare's 50 Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders, which honors physicians working in the healthcare industry who are deemed by their peers and an expert panel to be the most influential in terms of demonstrating leadership and impact. These physician leaders are innovators, excel in community services, and demonstrate reputable executive authority. The 2015 roster of honorees, in particular, reflect the growth of initiatives to improve patient safety and quality of care.
All this marks just the beginning of Dr. Corwin’s plans for this institution. He’s thrilled to position NewYork-Presbyterian as a leader of healthcare’s future—constantly finding new opportunities to bring “We put patients first” to life.
Training and Development
We value your perspective and believe in your potential. To support development, you’ll see senior leadership regularly rounding on all shifts.
From 2008-2014, NewYork-Presbyterian has ranked as one of Training Magazine's "Top 125 Companies." Recently, NYP was ranked 66 among global organizations in Training Magazine's 2014 Training Top 125. This is the seventh year that NYP has made the list, and we are one of only four academic medical centers to be recognized. The Training Top 125 is the most elite ranking among Fortune 500 organizations for training and learning development. It honors organizations that are unsurpassed in harnessing human capital.
We also sponsor an Emerging Leaders Council, putting our Master’s-prepared colleagues with 2-6 years' experience on a track to senior leadership.
In 2011, NewYork-Presbyterian ranked among Chief Learning Officer Magazine’s “Learning Elite”, the best organizations for learning and development. Forty-three companies spanning multiple industries, made the list. NYP was ranked 29 and one of only four hospitals nationally that were recognized among the best. This is a testimony to NYP’s commitment to enhancing the skills of our employees so they can provide the highest quality, most compassionate care and service to our patients and their families.
Engagement is one of NYP's Strategic Initiatives, and we are highly focused on engaging staff so that we can continue to strengthen the
NewYork-Presbyterian culture. A strong culture will help us continue to deliver the best patient care in the country while meeting the challenges ahead.
Unique to NewYork-Presbyterian:
Your colleagues will be remarkable, awe-inspiring individuals. Newsworthy things are happening everywhere. Our very own Dr. Mehmet Oz has hosted a daily television program since 2009. Esquire magazine listed him as one of the “75 Most Influential People of the 21st Century.”
But it doesn’t stop with Dr. Oz. In summer 2012, ABC News launched a seven-part documentary series in the style of “Boston Med,” featuring the work of NewYork-Presbyterian employees and patients. NYP doctors, nurses, families and more all pitched in to tell our inspiring story.
NY Med: The Sequel
The caregivers and clinicians of NewYork-Presbyterian are once again the stars of a hit TV series. ABC News has returned to NYP to film a second season of 2012's breakout medical program NY Med. This seven-part series will take a fresh look at life inside a leading academic medical center and will once again focus on inspiring stories that demonstrate how, every minute, We Put Patients First. The first episode of NY Med: The Sequel aired June 26, 2014.
Organ Donors: Connected for Life
The WABC special featuring NYP's Transplant program aired in April to provide education about the importance of organ donation. The organ transplantation program at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital - which includes NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia and The Rogosin Institute - is the most active program of its kind in the nation, offering comprehensive and personalized care for the heart, liver, pancreas, kidney and lung. With outcomes ranked among the nation's best, the Hospital is dedicated to improving quality of life for its patients.

Decades ago, colleagues approached leadership about what NewYork-Presbyterian could do to improve the environment. These conversations created our sustainability program called NYP Green.
Our efforts today involve all parts of the hospital and generate a great deal of passion. Our trailblazing work hasn’t gone unnoticed. Just a few of our initiatives include:
NYP/Weill Cornell has been recognized for its 7.5-megawatt cogeneration plant, which converts gas into electricity while excess heat is used to generate steam for heating and cooling. The plant is reducing carbon dioxide emissions by more than 27,000 tons each year. That’s the equivalent of pulling 4,600 cars from the road. And it’s reaping financial rewards, resulting in $6.1 million in energy savings every year.
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is the only New York hospital to get a Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award from the Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star program. The hospital is the only one in the country to earn a Partner of the Year award this year, as well as the only hospital to win the award nine times. NYP's efforts in energy management and climate communications were commended. Last year, the hospital cut its site energy use intensity by 6%. Among the initiatives of NYPgreen, its sustainability program, are a green workspace program that rewards employees for saving energy, an external website with tips for reducing energy consumption, and hospital-wide Earth Day celebrations.
With NYP continually expanding, many our new structures are being consciously constructed to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards. One example is the Lucille and Milton Colemen Tower at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, which uses 100% green power.
At NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, The Vivian and Seymour Milstein Family Heart Center was honored with LEED Gold Certification. That puts us in the ranks of the only half a dozen hospitals with LEED Gold or Platinum LEED certification in the United States.
Doctors initially told Danion’s mother that there was no way to save him. But his mother pushed on and came to NYP, where they agreed to accept the case. His surgeon, Dr. Mark Souweidane says, “It was one of the largest tumors I’ve ever seen.”
