Dr. David Ansell is an Internal Medicine physician and the Chief Medical Officer at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. His work with others on the problem of patient dumping brought national attention to this issue and resulted in landmark national legislation to end this practice. In 1995, Dr. Ansell moved to Chicago's Sinai Health System, the State of Illinois’ largest private provider of indigent care and one of the foremost safety-net health systems in the U.S., as the Chairperson of Internal Medicine. At Sinai, he was responsible for the creation of the Sinai Urban Health Institute, which has become one of the nation’s leading centers for research and interventions to understand and eliminate health inequities.
