The Mount Sinai Health System has appointed three new chief medical officers to lead The Mount Sinai Hospital, Mount Sinai Beth Israel, and Mount Sinai Queens.

Vicki LoPachin, MD, a respected member of the medical community who completed her residency and chief residency in internal medicine at Mount Sinai, recently returned to The Mount Sinai Hospital to serve as Chief Medical Officer.

From 2008 until her recent return to Mount Sinai, Dr. LoPachin served as Medical Director of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, where she led successful efforts to improve quality, safety, operational performance, the revenue cycle, and case management.

Earlier, Dr. LoPachin had served at Mount Sinai as President of the Association of Attending Staff, Lead Physician Advisor and Medical Director of Case Management, Chair of the Utilization Review Committee, and member of the Executive Committee of the Medical Board.

She received her MBA with distinction in Health Service Management from the Frank G. Zarb School of Business at Hofstra University.

“I am honored to be working again with the physicians, nurses, medical staff, and administrators here at The Mount Sinai Hospital,” says Dr. LoPachin. “I look forward to closely collaborating with my colleagues and with the leadership of the Mount Sinai Health System to ensure that we deliver the highest levels of quality care. Our patients deserve nothing less.”

Harris M. Nagler, MD, FACS, a leader in the field of urology, has been appointed to the newly created position of Physician-in-Chief and Chief Medical Officer for Mount Sinai Beth Israel in Manhattan.

Dr. Nagler has also been named Senior Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs of the Mount Sinai Health System and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. In his new role, Dr. Nagler will manage Mount Sinai Beth Israel’s inpatient and outpatient care with the goal of achieving the highest level of clinical excellence. He will also oversee the integration of Mount Sinai Beth Israel’s faculty practice with the Icahn School of Medicine.

Dr. Nagler’s appointments follow his long and distinguished career as President of Mount Sinai Beth Israel and Mount Sinai Beth Israel Brooklyn, Chair of the Sol and Margaret Berger Department of Urology, and Chief of Graduate Medical Education. Dr. Nagler is a recognized expert in the treatment of male infertility and has published extensively in the field. He also has held leadership positions in national and regional professional societies.

In this role, Dr. Radbill will oversee the delivery of high-quality, patient-focused medical care by nearly 500 physicians representing almost 40 medical and surgical specialties and subspecialties.

A specialist in chronic kidney disease, Dr. Radbill served as Medical Director of The Mount Sinai Hospital’s dialysis program, and Clinical Director of its renal division. He also served as Vice Chair of Quality for Mount Sinai’s Department of Medicine, where he developed a series of online tools to measure and monitor clinical performance.
