De Blasio honors Pam Brier, former Maimonides CEO and president
At Maimonides Gala, Mayor and First Lady Join Members Of Congress, Business and Health Care Leaders to Recognize Brier
Mayor Bill de Blasio, first lady Chirlane McCray, congressional leaders, prominent members of the business community, leaders from across the health care industry and local elected officials joined together on Wednesday at the Maimonides Annual Gala to honor recently retired Maimonides Medical Center President and CEO Pam Brier at the Waldorf Astoria.
In addition to the mayor and his wife, on hand to pay homage to Brier were U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, U.S. Rep. Nydia Velázquez, Maimonides board Chair Eugene Keilin and Maimonides President and CEO Kenneth Gibbs.
Brier’s career in public service and hospital administration has spanned four decades, five mayors and dozens of hard-won victories amassed from addressing significant public health challenges in New York City.
Brier launched her career in hospital leadership at the NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation in the 1980s, eventually becoming president of Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx and president of Bellevue Medical Center in Manhattan. In 1995, she took her talent for improving care delivery to Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, the borough’s largest hospital and biggest employer. She moved quickly to put the organization on firm financial footing as Maimonides grew from a $500 million community hospital to the billion-dollar hub for advanced care that it is today.
