David Condoluci, DO, MACOI, Senior VP and Chief Patient Safety & Quality Officer at Jefferson Health in New Jersey, was awarded the Distinguished Service Award by the New Jersey Hospital Association (NJHA) at its 100th Annual Meeting at the Hyatt Regency Princeton. The Distinguished Service Award recognizes healthcare leaders who demonstrate strength, integrity, professionalism, and a relentless commitment to a New Jersey-based hospital or health system.
Dr. Condoluci has long been an unsung hero to the Jefferson Health – New Jersey (formerly Kennedy Health) organization, as well as to his patients. A member of the Medical Staff since 1983, Dr. Condoluci has worked tirelessly to “raise the bar” on safety and quality; as a renowned Infectious Diseases specialist, he has shown unfailing compassion and commitment to people with HIV/AIDS.
A founding member of the NJ Society of Infectious Diseases and the AIDS Coalition of Southern New Jersey, Dr. Condoluci also established the HIV Medical Update Conference, held annually in South Jersey for healthcare providers since 1989; in December 2018, he received the Teddy DePrince Award at the annual conference in recognition of his continued commitment in addressing the needs of people living with HIV/AIDS. In a profile piece with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Dr. Condoluci referred to his work with HIV/AIDS patients as a “calling.”
The NJHA Annual Meeting on January 18th brought together more than 400 healthcare leaders, highlighted by the celebration of Jefferson Health (New Jersey) President Joe Devine’s installment as its new board Chair.
In addition to his very busy practice as an Infectious Diseases physician (where his son, Mark, also practices), Dr. Condoluci oversees quality and safety issues throughout Jefferson Health – New Jersey, including regulatory inspections and clinical improvement initiatives.
In 2015, Dr. Condoluci was named a Master Fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Internists (ACOI), one of the most prestigious honors bestowed on an ACOI member in recognition of superiority in clinical practice, teaching or research.
Dr. Condoluci, a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine, is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed a Fellowship in Infectious Diseases at Albany Medical College in New York. Board certified in both Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases, he is a Master Fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Internists (ACOI), and a Fellow of the Philadelphia College of Physicians. Dr. Condoluci resides in Moorestown, NJ.
