Weill Cor­nell keeps board lead­er­ship in the fam­ily

Modern Healthcare - - NEWS MAKERS -

Who: Jessica Bi­b­liow­icz, 55

Ap­point­ment: Chair­woman of the Weill Cor­nell Med­i­cal Col­lege board of over­seers, ef­fec­tive Jan. 1. She will suc­ceed her fa­ther, San­ford Weill, who will be­come chair­man emer­i­tus after 30 years on the board and 20 years as its chair­man.

Ca­reer:

Bi­b­liow­icz, who has been on the Weill Cor­nell board for 10 years, is se­nior ad­viser to the pri­vate eq­uity firm Bridge Growth Part­ners. She was CEO of ben­e­fits and wealth man­age­ment con­sult­ing company Na­tional Fi­nan­cial Part­ners from 1990 to 2013. She took the company pub­lic in 2003 and it was sold in 2013.

Her pri­or­i­ties:

Fundrais­ing is a ne­ces­sity as pub­lic sources of rev­enue shrink, she said. “You’ve got to look at the pri­vate sec­tor when you think about the dol­lars that are needed to solve a lot of the dis­ease dilem­mas.”

On growth at Weill Cor­nell:

“I think the scari­est word in this world of ours is ma­tu­rity,” she said of the col­lege’s in­vest­ments in ed­u­ca­tion, re­search and de­liv­ery in re­cent years. “There is no com­pla­cency. There is no ma­tu­rity. We will con­tinue to grow.”

On med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion in an era of health re­form:

“It’s still very hard to see where health­care re­form is go­ing to come out,” she said, adding that Weill Cor­nell con­tin­ues to eval­u­ate its cur­ricu­lum to make sure it meets the de­mands of the mar­ket­place.
