Mount Sinai Health System has appointed Beth Oliver, DNP, RN, to the role of Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Executive.

In this newly created role, Dr. Oliver will be responsible for the practice of nursing across the health system and will collaborate with the senior executive team as well as the chief nursing officers throughout Mount Sinai.

“As Chief Nursing Executive, her top three priorities will be ensuring the safety and quality of care for our patients, transforming the care we provide, and decreasing the overall costs of that care. These priorities, when well implemented, will improve patient experience,” said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Mount Sinai Health System. “In addition, Dr. Oliver will continue to develop and maintain Mount Sinai’s national reputation for excellence in nursing services. In collaboration with executive leadership and the Chief Nursing Officers, she will participate in the organization’s strategic plan—setting annual and long-term performance goals—and will leverage the Health System’s nursing excellence to advance the achievement of strategic goals, optimize clinical outcomes, enhance employee engagement, and promote a best-in-class patient experience.”

A nationally recognized cardiovascular leader, Dr. Oliver has fostered and supported evidence-based, patient-centered care throughout her career. For more than 28 years, Dr. Oliver has been a transformational cardiac nurse leader at Mount Sinai, most recently serving as Senior Vice President of Cardiac Services for the Health System, in which she leads cardiovascular service line strategy and operations for the Health System while also being responsible for ensuring the delivery of quality care to Mount Sinai Heart patients.

In addition to her Mount Sinai leadership roles, Dr. Oliver has led numerous cardiovascular health-related community outreach programs in partnership with the American Heart Association. In July 2018, Dr. Oliver was appointed President of the American Heart Association’s Board of Directors in New York City, becoming the first nurse to hold the position of Board President.

As a clinician, an executive, and a nurse, Dr. Oliver is committed to advancing population health and the current and future role of nurses in achieving this goal.

Dr. Oliver received her MS from Columbia University and her DNP from Case Western Reserve University.
