NewYork-Presbyterian Launches Dalio Center for Health Justice PDF Print Email

By Josefa Paganuzzi, Thompson & Bender for NewYork-Presbyterian

Oct. 28, 2020: On October 13, 2020, NewYork-Presbyterian launched the Dalio Center for Health Justice, dedicated to understanding and improving health equity, addressing health justice, and driving action that results in measurable improvements in health outcomes for all.

The Dalio Center for Health Justice is the result of a $50 million grant from Dalio Philanthropies, whose founder Ray Dalio is a NewYork-Presbyterian Trustee and an important thought partner behind the center. Among the center’s priorities will be reducing health disparities that disproportionately affect communities of color.

“Our goal is to contribute to equal healthcare and equal education because we believe that these are the most fundamental building blocks of equal opportunity and a just society,” said Ray Dalio, founder of Dalio Philanthropies and NewYork-Presbyterian Trustee. “We know that these don’t adequately exist, and we are excited to have a great partner in NewYork-Presbyterian, who we are confident will find ways to achieve more health justice.”

“The Dalio Center for Health Justice reflects our shared commitment to proactively addressing health disparities and the systemic inequities that create conditions for poor health,” said Jerry I. Speyer, chair of the NewYork-Presbyterian Board of Trustees. “We are grateful to Ray Dalio for his extraordinary leadership in the fight for health justice and his support as we strive to deliver the highest quality care to every patient and improve the health of all the communities we serve.”

“We are living in a profound time where social, economic and health crises are converging at once, and we recognize our country must address longstanding health disparities due to race, socioeconomic differences, access to care, and other complex factors that impact the well-being of our communities disproportionately,” said Dr. Steven J. Corwin, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian. “NewYork-Presbyterian hopes to be a leader in health justice and developing programs to help solve these issues and improve the lives of our patients and our communities.”

The Dalio Center for Health Justice will be a convener, collaborator and grantor, bringing together renowned experts in diverse fields to fuel change and support health justice among NewYork-Presbyterian team members, our patients and communities, and ultimately local and national policy. The center will be led by Dr. Julia Iyasere, who brings significant experience in medicine and has championed diversity and inclusion throughout her career.

“The COVID-19 pandemic exposed enduring health inequities in a new and alarming way, and the importance of health justice has never been clearer,” said Dr. Julia Iyasere, head of the Dalio Center for Health Justice at NewYork-Presbyterian. “We are committed to improving the health and well-being of our patients and communities through research, dialogue and education, equity in our clinical operations, investment in our communities and advocacy for national change.”

The center will promote health justice and address the health disparities of our employees, patients and communities through research, health education and programs that foster equity in clinical operations and enhance the culturally sensitive care provided by NewYork-Presbyterian. It will focus on comprehensive analysis to understand more fully social determinants of health, creating a robust and diverse health equity database to inform the center’s work in developing community-based initiatives, advocating locally and nationally for change, seeking grants, and producing an institutional equity report. It will also focus on examining and addressing unconscious bias in medicine and clinical trials. The center will inaugurate a Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity Symposium to encourage discussions across the organization, highlight faculty research and innovations, and provide a career development forum for underrepresented minority fellows and residents, with the goal of producing tangible solutions to health disparities.

The Dalio Center for Health Justice will serve as a central resource for health justice, health equity and community-based work, focused on institutional alignment and the achievement of measurable and consequential outcomes. To foster innovations in research and care delivery, the center will convene local and national groups and become a sponsor for grant funding.

Hospitals

NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital

In July 2014, Lawrence Hospital and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital established a new relationship aimed at enhancing care, improving access and lowering health care costs for residents of Bronxville and surrounding communities in Westchester County. Lawrence was renamed NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital.

Lawrence Hospital Center was founded in 1909 and is a 291-bed acute care facility with over 1100 employees and 400 physicians. It provides emergency care to approximately 35,000 individuals every year.   It became a designated New York State Stroke Center in 2006.  Its physicians provide expertise in virtually every area of medical specialty and include over 100 primary care physicians. And, Lawrence delivers about 2000 babies every year in the home-like setting of newly designed Labor and Delivery recovery rooms.

Outpatient services include diagnostic testing and laboratory services, ambulatory surgery options, and rehabilitation and sports medicine services. The Hospital has a Women`s Imaging Center where female patients receive diagnostic services in a private setting. Outpatient physical therapy, lymphedema therapy, speech and occupational therapy services are provided both on-site at the Hospital and at Lawrence`s satellite center, The Center for Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine, in Scarsdale.

The Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. The Hospital is fully licensed by the New York State Department of Health. Lawrence`s laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists.
