Philip Silverman, Chief Physical Assets Officer at Northwell Health announced today that he is stepping down from his current role to launch Blue Sky Real Estate Services, a company that will deliver innovative real estate solutions to healthcare, educational, and other mission-driven organizations. Phil is joined by a team of leaders who have also devoted their careers to supporting mission-driven institutions. “Blue Sky’s professional expertise lies in delivering strategic solutions to difficult real estate and facilities challenges. Our commitment is to serve organizations that provide a societal good,” said Mr. Silverman.

Prior to joining Northwell, Mr. Silverman served as Vice President for Real Estate at Columbia University where he assembled the 17-acre site for the 6.8 million square foot Manhattanville campus expansion. Silverman brings over 30 years of executive leadership and industry expertise concluding more than one billion dollars of not-for-profit real estate transactions and development.

“Northwell has experienced unprecedented growth in recent years said Gene Tangney, Chief Administrative Officer for Northwell Health. “Phil and his team have done a masterful job of designing and implementing innovative real estate strategies to create economic value that is being redeployed into our mission of caring for patients. To assure a seamless transition, Northwell has retained Blue Sky to carry forward the work in progress and pursue future strategic real estate initiatives.”
