Alan Aviles

Modern Healthcare - - Cover Story -

In 2005, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg ap­pointed Alan Aviles as pres­i­dent and CEO of the New York City Health and Hos­pi­tals Corp., the largest mu­nic­i­pal hospi­tal sys­tem in the coun­try, with 11 acute-care fa­cil­i­ties. Since then, Aviles, 55, has overseen a $1.3 bil­lion cap­i­tal-im­prove­ment project, the im­ple­men­ta­tion of a elec­tronic healthrecord sys­tem and a pa­tient-safety pro­gram to re­duce med­i­cal er­rors and in­fec­tions. The pa­tient-safety pro­gram has pre­vented more than 1,000 in­fec­tions and saved nearly $16 mil­lion over the past three years, ac­cord­ing to Aviles. A na­tive of the Bronx, Aviles was pre­vi­ously the sys­tem’s gen­eral coun­sel and se­nior vice pres­i­dent.
