New Jewish Home’s medical director, Dr. Ruth Spinner

How We’re Tackling COVID-19: A Conversation With Our Manhattan Medical Director

Dr. Ruth Spinner, our Manhattan medical director, has been expertly leading The New Jewish Home’s system-wide response to the devastating pandemic since February, tracking the disease in Asia before we experienced any cases of COVID-19 at our facilities. She continues to skillfully guide our COVID-19 tasks force, which brings senior leaders, clinicians and administrators across our system together on a daily call where they proactively plan and solve problems, discuss best practices and analyze the latest guidance from the New York State Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control.
