    Sareli to Lead Clinical Efforts for Memorial Healthcare System

    Aharon (Ari) Sareli, MD, a critical care physician and longtime clinical and executive leader, has been named chief medical officer by Memorial Healthcare System. In a related move, Memorial appointed Holly Neville, MD, its associate chief medical officer.

    The new partnership brings both adult and pediatric specialists with medical and surgical expertise to CMO positions and directly connects the system’s executive leadership to the front lines of care. Both Dr. Sareli and Dr. Neville will maintain their current roles; he as chief physician executive of the Memorial Employed Physician Enterprise, and she as chief of pediatric general surgery and program director of Memorial’s surgical residency program.

    “Both Ari and Holly have worked throughout our system, earning respect and elevating patient care through collaborations with fellow physicians, nurses, and operational teams,” said K. Scott Wester, Memorial Healthcare System CEO. “They and our many other medical leaders will maintain a focus on delivering clinical quality and critical services to patients while also educating the next generation of physicians.”

    Memorial’s executive team solicited feedback from a variety of stakeholders before creating the CMO partnership and further aligning its medical community. “Pairing Dr. Neville and I enables the position to span the depth and breadth of clinical operations.

    Throughout my career, I’ve embraced servant leadership and never shied from doing what was needed to advance the delivery of care, whether at the bedside or executive suite,” said Sareli.

    Dr. Sareli first joined Memorial Healthcare System as an intensivist in 2009, after completing his specialty training at the University of Pennsylvania with quadruple board certification in internal medicine, pulmonary disease, critical care, and sleep medicine. He was appointed director of Memorial Hospital West’s Critical Care in 2010 and chief of critical care for the system in 2012. Promoted to chief physician executive of the Memorial Physician Group (MPG) in 2019, Sareli served in an executive role with clinical leadership of the evolving organization. Under his leadership, MPG has grown to include 350+ physicians and 220 advanced practice providers. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Sareli played a key role in front-line clinical leadership in critical care and served on Memorial’s COVID-19 Clinical Steering committee.

Neville also serves on the education and wellness committee for the American Pediatric Surgical Association and on the boards of the University of Florida College of Medicine and the Memorial and Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundations.

    "Catch the Love Classic" Raises $420,000 for Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Foundation

    It was a perfect day for golf, and fundraising for a special cause, at St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton. The club was the site of the second annual “Catch the Love Classic,” an event that raised $420,000 for Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation.

    Presented by Susan and Charlie Emby, it featured 128 golfers that enjoyed lunch, a scramble format, cocktails, and a live auction that included a seven-night stay at a private beach house at the Eden Rock Resort on the island of St. Barths.

    “When you donate to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, you are ensuring your children and grandchildren will have access to world-class healthcare services close to home,” said Kevin Janser, president of the nonprofit Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation. “Additionally, and this is a promise we made to Mr. DiMaggio himself, all children will have equal access to care and none will ever be turned away, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.”

    The money raised at the Catch the Love Classic is earmarked for three initiatives within the foundation:

    • Helping underwrite the four-floor expansion of the children’s hospital building.
    • Covering costs at the Conine Clubhouse, a hotel-like facility where families can stay for free while a child is being treated.
    • Funding the Patient & Family Emergency Assistance Fund that provides financial resources at critical times to families impacted by a child’s medical condition.

    This is the second consecutive year residents of St. Andrews Country Club have raised more than $400,000 to benefit Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, with a nursing station on the new 7th floor Pediatric Intensive Care Unit recently named in their honor.

    Young Boy Makes Miraculous Recovery After Severe Crash Lands Him at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Days Before Christmas

    A severe crash that happened on December 19, 2022, in Miramar sent Jacob, 7, to Memorial Regional Hospital/Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Level 1 Trauma Center. He suffered a brain injury, several extremity and pelvic fractures and multiple organ injuries in his liver, heart and kidneys.

    Upon arrival, trauma doctors and surgeons worked quickly to save Jacob’s life, providing resuscitation and intense critical care to address his injuries. Due to the extent and severity of Jacob’s injuries, his expected survival and recovery were slim, and long term prognosis likely poor, if he survived.

    His father, Anthony Estrada and other members of his family stood vigil that day, praying for his recovery, and they have remained by his bedside ever since.

    For the past two months, Jacob has been at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital under the care of doctors from many specialties and medical personnel of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Intensive care doctors have worked diligently to help him overcome his brain injury and get him medically cleared to move on to his inpatient rehabilitation phase.

    Today, with the care of multiple medical experts, the support and love of his family and his resilience, Jacob is walking on his own after discharge from Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital.

    “This is a true team effort, caring for Jacob truly brought the hospital together,” said Tamar Levene, MD, associate program director, General Surgery Residency Program, who was one of the many surgeons who operated on Jacob upon his trauma arrival.
