St Joseph's College Healthcare Management Seminar
Wednesday, April 2, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (PDT)
My name is Dr. Lauren Pete, and I am the chair of the health care administration department at St. Joseph’s College. As part of our department’s mission, we view it as essential that we contribute to the ongoing dialogue in the healthcare community, through providing both a forum for the expression of ideas and to contribute our knowledge and experience to the conversation.
In keeping with this, I am pleased to announce that we will welcome Ms. Pamela Brier, CEO and President of Maimonides Medical Center, to our Brooklyn campus on Wednesday, April 2. Her talk, “Leading Change in the Era of health Reform,” will discuss the new paradigm in which healthcare organization must operate, the challenges that have emerged, and the approaches that successful healthcare organizations are taking in order to provide class-leading care while remaining fiscally stable. After the talk, there will be time for a question and answer session with Ms. Brier.
Pamela Brier is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Maimonides Medical Center. She has been at Maimonides since 1995, for eight years as Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer and since 2003, as the leader of this 711-bed major teaching hospital. During her time at Maimonides, she has worked tirelessly to position the hospital as a major tertiary care center while at the same time remaining true to its community roots. She expanded clinical services, including a new full service cancer center and a $116 million new nine-story inpatient pavilion, and, under Ms. Brier’s leadership, Maimonides has gained a widespread reputation for medical excellence, compassionate patient care and innovation.
The event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Tuohy Hall Auditorium, St. Joseph’s College, 245 Clinton Avenue, Brooklyn (between DeKalb and Willoughby Avenues) and dinner will be served. The event is free and open to members of the healthcare community, so if you know of anyone who would benefit from or enjoy this talk, please feel free to pass this along.

Since 1916, St. Joseph's College has provided an affordable liberal arts education to a diverse group of students. Independent and coeducational, St. Joseph's prepares students for lives of integrity, intellectual and spiritual values, social responsibility and service - lives that are worthy of the College's motto, Esse non videri - "To be, not to seem."
St. Joseph's challenges its approximately 5,000 students to develop their full potential and a joy of learning. With more than 400 faculty members, the College enjoys a student-faculty ratio that provides individual attention in an open, supportive atmosphere.
St. Joseph's remains dedicated to maintaining low costs while upholding a strict standard of excellence. While retention rates at most colleges are slipping, St. Joseph's remains above the national average.
Its academic strength hasn't gone unnoticed. The College is consistently recognized in U.S. News & World Report's annual "America's Best Colleges" issue.
Health administration covers a wide spectrum of professions and many of St. Joseph’s College’s students already have credentials in the health fields. Some are in radiologic technology, nursing and medical records. Others, though, are just seeking to enhance their career prospects through this program.
Our B.S. in Health Administration develops administrative skills and knowledge through an extensive curriculum that includes organizational behavior, comprehensive health planning, human resources management, long-term health care administration, staff development, financial management and home care administration.
The M.B.A. in Health Care Management strengthened St. Joseph’s College’s already successful Graduate Management Studies program. The degree is perfect for working adults seeking to advance to a senior managerial position in the health care industry.
The M.B.A., created in response to student demand, provides a comprehensive business education that emphasizes the financial, legal, regulatory, managerial, political, social and historical aspects of health care while also focusing on current issues.
Throughout the curriculum, the program supports the development of ethical behavior and social responsibility, including diversity within the workplace. Each course has a self-directed managerial applications component that addresses an appropriate, student identified issue/problem/task within an actual health care environment.
