Rebecca Altman was promoted to Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Sinai Hospital of Baltimore and Grace Medical Center.
In his new role, Altman will focus on the day-to-day operations of these two LifeBridge Health medical facilities. Altman previously served as vice president and chief integration officer, including leading the healthcare system acquisition and ongoing renovations and transformations of Grace Medical Center (formerly Bon Secours Hospital) in West Baltimore.
Over the past three years, Altman has led the transformation of healthcare delivery in West Baltimore with the transition of Bon Secours Hospital to Grace Medical Center. This acquisition and transition is part of LifeBridge Health’s $85 million commitment to improve and expand the facility and the services it provides to the West Baltimore community. Altman managed the opening of a brand new emergency department as well as primary and specialty care clinics, an operating theater and operating rooms. Altman, after hearing the needs of the community, also expanded medical services to include OB/GYN, pediatrics, ophthalmology and orthopedics at the Grace site.
In the spring of 2021, Governor Larry Hogan appointed Altman as an advisor to the Health Equity Resource (HERC) Community Advisory Committee, and she chairs the HERC’s Data Subcommittee.
