NYC Health + Hospitals today announced the appointment of Nicole Jordan-Martin, MPA, as executive director of NYC Health + Hospitals/Community Care, the public health system’s program to deliver services to patients at home and in the community. In the role of executive director, Jordan-Martin will be responsible for overall strategic priorities, including patient growth, clinical integration, care management, quality improvement and financial sustainability. Prior to joining NYC Health + Hospitals/Community Care, Jordan-Martin served as a senior assistant vice president, executive director for Implementation, and the Brooklyn Hub executive director at OneCity Health, New York State’s largest Performing Provider System. She also previously worked with NYC Health + Hospitals’ sponsored partnerships of organizations and healthcare professionals, collaborating to meet community needs by transforming healthcare delivery.

“Our vision for NYC Health + Hospitals/Community Care is to deliver more services and better care in patients’ communities and homes, as part of a broader approach to improving population health,” said Dave Chokshi, MD, vice president and chief population health officer at NYC Health + Hospitals. “Nicole Jordan-Martin is the right leader for this exciting transformation, as we expand and strengthen services, particularly for our most vulnerable patients.”

“I am deeply honored and privileged to lead our more than 600 member workforce in creating villages of care, wellness and support for our patients and their families in their neighborhoods and communities,” said Jordan-Martin. “We will continue to work closely with community partners to deliver even more on NYC Health + Hospitals’ longstanding recognition that we are also responsible for our patients’ health and wellness outside the walls of our hospitals and clinics. We embrace this responsibility wholeheartedly each and every day and strive to ensure that our most vulnerable patients are connected to care coordination services as they would be to any clinical service.”

“Congratulations to Ms. Jordan-Martin and to NYC Health + Hospitals for bringing her on board,” said Assembly Health Committee Chair Richard N. Gottfried. “She brings experience with a variety of care delivery programs and systems—from infrastructure development to health homes—and I look forward to working with her.”

Before joining NYC Health + Hospitals, Jordan-Martin was senior director at Montefiore Health System where she was responsible for the design, implementation and monitoring of Montefiore’s Health Home, and coordinated with the Montefiore Pioneer Accountable Care Organization to co-manage Health Home members who were dually covered by Medicare and Medicaid.

Jordan-Martin has worked internationally under the auspices of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief as a country director and led the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of a five-year infrastructural project in Georgetown, Guyana that focused on HIV care, treatment and support services including laboratory infrastructure and workforce development. She has also consulted for the World Health Organization on a regional approach to scaling up the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV and pediatric HIV care and treatment in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Jordan-Martin received an MPA in Public Health Administration from Long Island University and a BS in Health Services Administration from St. Joseph’s College where she also earned certificates in Healthcare Management and Home Care Administration.

NYC Health + Hospitals/Community Care, which includes more than 600 employees, brings health care to patients where they live. Services include home care, care coordination, community- and facility-based care management, and complex care coordination for patients with behavioral health conditions.
