Radbill Named Chief Medical Officer at Overlook Medical Center

Brian David Radbill, MD, MBA, FACP, a board-certified nephrologist and dynamic clinical executive, has become chief medical officer (CMO) at Overlook Medical Center, part of Atlantic Health System.

As CMO at Overlook, Dr. Radbill is responsible for the clinical leadership of Overlook Medical Center’s medical staff which is comprised of 1,728 physicians.

Dr. Radbill came to Overlook after a successful career in the Mount Sinai Health System. He most recently served as Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President, Medical Affairs at Mount Sinai Morningside, a 495-bed hospital in the Morningside Heights section of Manhattan.

“We are excited to have a leader of Dr. Radbill’s caliber join us to lead our amazing physicians who drive the exceptional care and innovation that are the hallmarks of Overlook Medical Center,” said Stephanie Schwartz, president of Overlook Medical Center. “We are looking forward to Dr. Radbill working with our clinical leaders to forge advances in care and quality for our patients.”

Dr. Radbill will provide leadership and expertise in support of improving clinical quality and safety at Overlook. He will serve as an advocate for Overlook’s physicians and medical staff and a liaison working to create long-term relationships and collaborations among Overlook’s physicians and team members and Atlantic Health leadership. In addition, Dr. Radbill will play an important role in supporting the organization’s strategic goals, including continued growth and the delivery of an exceptional patient experience.

“Dr. Radbill brings excellence and expertise to Atlantic Health System,” said Suja Mathew, MD, executive vice president and Chief Clinical Officer for Atlantic Health System. “In addition to the wonderful work he will do at Overlook, I anticipate he will make a significant impact on quality, patient safety and clinical effectiveness across the system.”

Dr. Radbill joins Overlook in the midst of a multi-phase transformation plan that will see the majority of the hospital enhanced. The “Overlook Ahead” plan has already seen the creation of the Hersh Children’s Center, a new entrance to the emergency department, and the creation of the EmPATH behavioral health unit.

Overlook has garnered increasing recognition for clinical excellence in recent years. For five years in a row, Overlook has been named one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals by Healthgrades, and among one of the World’s Best Hospitals by Newsweek for five years in a row. Overlook has been named a Best Hospital in New Jersey – ranking 4th in the state in 2023 – and in the New York Metro Area by US News & World Report. Overlook has received an ‘A’ patient safety grade from The Leapfrog Group consistently since Spring 2021.

“Overlook is a truly remarkable place that stands out within the healthcare landscape,” Dr. Radbill said. “I’m extremely proud to join it at such a transformational period, and excited to guide our doctors’ contribution to Overlook’s next chapter.”

During his tenure at Mount Sinai, Dr. Radbill developed several initiatives to improve quality and safety, including a program to train leaders to effectively respond after a safety event and an online tool to facilitate the tracking and completion of Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluations.

As Chief Medical Officer for Mount Sinai Morningside, he served as the Incident Commander for the hospital’s Incident Management Team when the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020 and coordinated the hospital’s local response through multiple successive waves of the pandemic.

Dr. Radbill completed his residency in Internal Medicine and his fellowship in Nephrology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He earned his MD from Hahnemann University School of Medicine and holds an MBA from Columbia Business School.
