According to the Eagle, Debra D. Carey, CEO of SUNY Downstate Medical Center University Hospital of Brooklyn, will also serve as interim CEO of University Hospital of Brooklyn at Long Island College Hospital, the ponderous name of what we will always know as LICH, following the departure at the end of July of LICH’s interim president, Dominick Stanzione. LICH is now part of the SUNY Downstate family of hospitals, and Ms. Carey will divide her time between SUNY Downstate Medical Center University Hospital of Brooklyn in Flatbush and LICH until a new full-time chief administrator for LICH can be found.
Brooklyn Daily Eagle: Carey, a graduate of Syracuse University and the Harvard School of Public Health, has been with UHB since 2005, during which she oversaw major renovations of the 376-bed facility. Before joining the Downstate Medical Center team, she served as the associate executive director and CEO at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C. Prior to that, she held leadership positions at the University of Maryland and the Johns Hopkins Medical System.
Ms. Carey will have a short commute to her office at LICH. She lives at One Brooklyn Bridge Park.
