Dr. Joslin Appointed Clinical Operations Officer
I am delighted to announce the appointment of Jeremy Joslin MD, MBA as Clinical Operations Officer for Upstate University Hospital, effective May 11, 2020. Dr. Joslin has served as the Assistant Chief Medical Officer for Capacity and Clinical Operations since 2018. Over the past 2 years, he has worked across multiple stakeholder groups to coordinate a united effort to improve patient care efficiency and smooth operations. During his time as Associate CMO for Capacity and Clinical Operations, he collaborated with nursing, physicians, and IMT leadership to develop process improvement initiatives and innovations that are used to guide our hospital's daily decisions on admissions, discharges, and transfers. During Upstate's response to COVID-19, Dr. Joslin served as the Incident Command Planning Section chief, leading a multi-disciplinary team that drafted the hospital's surge and re-opening plans.
"Throughout my time as Associate CMO, I have been impressed with the dedication of our staff who go above and beyond expectations to ensure our patients receive the most timely care, expertly delivered at the most optimal location within our system," Dr. Joslin said.
Prior to his post as ACMO for Capacity and Clinical Operations, Dr. Joslin served as the University Hospital Emergency Department Medical Director from 2014 to 2018. He has also served as Medical Director of the Upstate Transfer Center and Medical Director for our Transitions of Care Department.
Dr. Joslin earned his medical degree from St. George's University, Grenada. He joined Upstate in 2007 for residency training in Emergency Medicine, after which he completed a fellowship in EMS and Disaster Medicine at Upstate and earned the distinction of Fellow of Wilderness Medicine from the Wilderness Medical Society. Soon after, he developed and directed the Wilderness and Expedition Medicine fellowship program at Upstate, one of the first fellowships of its kind in the United States. He has provided medical direction, operations support, and risk mitigation for sporting events and TV production companies in some of the world's most austere environments.
In 2018, Dr. Joslin completed a Master's degree in Business Administration from SUNY Oswego. In his new role as Clinical Operations Officer, he will report to the Chief Medical Officer. He will continue to work closely with Scott Jessie, MS, RN, NEA-BC, Upstate's Executive Director of Nursing, to meaningfully manage patient logistics and hospital throughput. The Clinical Operations Officer will also oversee the hospital's Pharmacy, Laboratory, and Radiology services.
