Farmingdale College Foundation to Honor
Michael J. Dowling, president and chief executive officer of the North Shore-Long Island Jewish (LIJ) Health System, will be honored by the Farmingdale College Foundation of the Farmingdale State University of New York on October 12 at Oheka Castle, Huntington, where he will be inducted into the foundation's Business Hall of Fame.
Since being named North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System's chief executive in 2002, Mr. Dowling has advanced the integration of the network's numerous health care institutions under a common mandate of excellence and efficiency. Long Island's largest employer, with over 38,000 employees, the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System was one of the first hospital chains in the country to participate in a voluntary Medicare program that ties reimbursement to performance rather than diagnostic categories.
"The North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System is a significant driving force in raising performance expectations of the health care industry throughout the nation," said Dr. Henry Sikorski, vice president of the Office of Institutional Advancement at Farmingdale State. "Michael Dowling appreciates that superior health care, delivered with cost-conscious efficiency, underlies the quality of life here on Long Island. "
Farmingdale State provides the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System with training programs that enhance the skills of hundreds of employees. The College has provided recertification training in Phlebotomy, Spanish, and continuing education courses in medical device utilization, and much more.
