 Dr. Jonathan Ringo (KDHSL 1985)

Jonathan Ringo, M.D. is the president and chief operating officer of Sinai Hospital of Baltimore.  Sinai Hospital has over 500 beds and is the flagship member of the “LifeBridge Health” health system.

Dr. Ringo joined the organization in 2014, from Northwell Health System in New York, as the system’s first Chief Medical Information Officer and was also appointed as Vice President of Clinical Transformation. Dr Ringo has focused on closing the gap in the communities’ health disparities while developing centres of excellence, strengthening financial and quality outcomes.

Dr. Ringo is board-certified in obstetrics and gynaecology, and continues to practise as a labourist at Sinai Hospital’s Labour and Delivery unit, as well as working at the medical practice of Sinai Community care.  Dr Ringo attended college at Brandeis University and earned his medical degree from the International University of Health Sciences.  He served as the administrative chief resident of Sinai Hospital during his medical training.

Dr. Ringo has received numerous awards and recognitions in research and teaching, including the Excellence in Teaching Award from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in both 2010 and 2012.

On his time at King David, he says “I shall always be deeply grateful to King David High School for the foundational experience I had, not only from an educational perspective, but for the fellowship, comradery and all round personal growth. My memories of Kind David both in and out of the classroom are happy ones, of days enriched with academic and intellectual challenges. It is a tribute to Mr. Wolf and his entire staff that so many Davidian’s have travelled far and wide yet remain a source of pride to not only their local community but to the South African Jewish community as well.”
