How Do We Win Against COVID-19? With Michael Dowling, CEO, Northwell Health

Hear Michael Dowling’s, CEO of Northwell, current perspective on COVID-19 as the leader of the largest healthcare provider and private employer in New York State.

At the end of March when New York was under quarantine and in the midst of a very frightening point of the Pandemic and Dowling’s calm demeanor and positive outlook that we would ultimately defeat COVID-19 was very reassuring for many.

Northwell cares for more than two million people annually through a vast network of nearly 800 outpatient facilities, including 220 primary care practices, 52 urgent care centers, home care, rehabilitation and end-of-life programs, and 23 hospitals.

As president and CEO of Northwell Health, Dowling leads a clinical, academic and research enterprise with a workforce of more than 74,000 and annual revenue of $13.5 billion.

In this episode, we discussed the leadership skills that you need during this Pandemic, advice to the general public as we enter the winter/holiday season and coming into this second peak, regularity of testing, when to go to the hospital for treatment,  access to PPE and, when vaccines will be readily available to the general public in NY and more.
