Our Leadership


Dr. Jeffrey Brenner, M.D.

Chief Executive Officer

DR. JEFFREY BRENNER, M.D. joined The Jewish Board as CEO in May 2021. A healthcare and nonprofit leader focused on improving outcomes for vulnerable and complex populations, Dr. Brenner began his career as a frontline family physician, providing full-spectrum family health services for a Medicaid-enrolled population.

Recognizing the need for a new way for hospitals, providers, and community residents to collaborate, he founded what would become the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers in 2002 and served as its CEO from its incorporation in 2006 through 2017. In 2013 he was honored with the MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship for his innovative use of data to identify high-need, high-cost patients in a fragmented system and improve their care.

While continuing to serve as the CEO of the Camden Coalition, in 2012 Dr. Brenner accepted an invitation from a local hospital to jointly reorganize and co-lead its urban outpatient hospital clinics, which launched a highly successful inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment program which brought addiction services to the emergency room, hospital floors, and pregnant mothers experiencing addiction.

From 2017 to 2020, as a Senior Vice President at United Healthcare, Dr. Brenner co-developed and jointly scaled a national program to provide housing and support services to complex Medicaid members experiencing homelessness in over 22 states. Dr. Brenner holds a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Vassar College, and graduated from the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
