BROOKLYN, NY (February 21, 2023), The American Board of Emergency Medicine today announced that John Marshall, MD, Maimonides’ Chair of Emergency Medicine, has been elected to the ABEM Board of Directors. In addition to his leadership of Emergency Medicine at Maimonides Medical Center, Maimonides Midwood Community Hospital, and the soon-to-open Maimonides Bay Ridge Emergency Department, Dr. Marshall is also Vice President of Medical Affairs.

“Dr. Marshall has made enormous contributions to the Brooklyn community and to the training and advancement of emergency medicine providers that extend across the country,” said Ken Gibbs, President and CEO of Maimonides Health. “His passion for both clinical practice and medical education has benefited patients and students alike, and he is entirely deserving of this honor.” Gibbs also credits Dr. Marshall for his leadership throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, when he oversaw key aspects of the hospital’s response which included more than doubling capacity to match the influx of patients.

An Air Force veteran who served in Afghanistan providing critical care transport, Dr. Marshall has expanded Maimonides Medical Center’s academic and educational offerings since joining the organization in 2003. He has led the development of seven Emergency Medicine fellowship programs and a state-of-the art Simulation Center, and grew EMS services into the largest hospital-based, 911-participating ambulance service in New York City. He has also published extensively on emergency medicine, and is an editor of the textbook Critical Care Emergency Medicine.

ABEM is dedicated to ensuring the highest standards of emergency medical care, facilitating professional development, continuous certification of members and certifying all physicians who demonstrate special knowledge and skills in the area. Dr. Marshall has volunteered with ABEM as an oral examiner since 2012 and as a test question writer since 2007.
