Having profound knowledge and experience in the health care sector, Jose R. Sanchez, President and CEO of Humboldt Park Health, is skillfully leading the charge of advancing health equity at the hospital. Tapping into his vast expertise, he aims to bring innovative solutions for all patients to deliver the best quality services.

Jose has been the President and Chief Executive Officer of Humboldt Park Health since late 2010. For over 40+ years, he has witnessed the challenges of health care in both New York and Chicago and gained valuable insights into successfully managing community hospitals located in urban settings. As he progressed forward, he decided to widen his knowledge to contribute towards the improvement of health care for underserved populations. Jose completed his Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the City College of New York and then earned a Master of Social Work from Adelphi University. In 2002, he was conferred an Honorary Doctorate degree from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine in recognition of his immeasurable accomplishments and steadfast commitment to improving the health care outcomes for some of the poorest and most disadvantaged populations in New York City. In 2019, Jose was conferred his second Honorary Doctorate degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine for his contributions to medicine, education, and public health.

Before assuming his leadership role at Humboldt Park Health, Jose took the onus for the role of Senior Vice President of the Generations +/Northern Manhattan Health Network, the largest health care network in the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation. While handling the responsibilities, he oversaw three acute care hospitals, of which two were level one trauma centers and 34 community-based health centers in East Harlem, Central Harlem, and the South Bronx in New York City.
