NYC Health + Hospitals’ Nicholas Stine, MD, Named to Crain’s New York “40 Under 40” List
Mar 28, 2016
Dr. Nicholas Stine, Chief Medical Officer of NYC Health + Hospitals‘ Accountable Care Organization has been named to the Crain’s New York 2016 “40 Under 40” list for his work overseeing health care teams across the City who have improved health outcomes in their patient populations while simultaneously driving down the costs of care. Dr. Stine was chosen from more than 500 nominations, recipients include leaders and entrepreneurs from a diverse range of professions and industries including Fortune 500 companies, local government, health care, and science.
“The recent successes of NYC Health + Hospitals ACO continues to demonstrate our commitment to providing excellent primary care to the most vulnerable and high-risk populations in New York City,” said Dr. Ross Wilson, Chief Executive Officer, NYC Health + Hospitals ACO. “Dr. Stine is a dedicated leader and this recognition is well deserved.”
Under Dr. Stine’s leadership, the ACO successfully reduced costs and improved quality in each of its first two performance years, placing it among only 15 percent of ACOs across the country to do so. As Chief Medical Officer of the ACO, Dr. Stine coordinates 18 teams all working to improve the health of its assigned patients and reduce their overall health care costs. The work of the staff at NYC Health + Hospitals’ patient-centered medical homes across New York City is focused on keeping patients healthy in their homes and communities, and keeping them out of hospitals.
“I’m privileged to work with an extraordinary team of colleagues across New York City,” said Dr. Stine. “There’s a remarkable dedication to the health and well-being of our patient population, and together we’ve demonstrated important progress toward developing new models of care to better anticipate and meet our patients’ needs.”
In August 2015, for the second year in a row, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced that the Accountable Care Organization under Dr. Stine proved successful in helping improve the health of New Yorkers while reducing wasteful spending. ACO member hospitals, physicians and other providers together achieved superior quality scores for patient care and at the same time reduced healthcare spending by $7.1 million. As one of the few ACOs in the country run by a public healthcare system, it was among a handful of ACOs that generated savings while meeting cost and quality targets.
Dr. Stine is also an Attending Primary Care Physician at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Population Health and Department of Medicine at the NYU School of Medicine. He is board-certified in Internal Medicine, completing residency at Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, preceded by medical school at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Stine has published on the intersection between Medicine and Public Health in prominent journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association, and has clinical experience in Philadelphia, Boston, New York, the Indian Health Service, Botswana and Haiti.
