The AUB Community mourns the recent loss of its former trustee, Dr. Thomas Price Jacobs, who served on the board from 1996 – 2011.

His leadership of AUB’s Medicine and Health Performance Improvement sub-committee in the early 2000s was invaluable in modernizing the hospital’s medical practices, and in implementing transparency and accountability.

A graduate of Amherst College and Johns Hopkins University, Jacobs spent a year in Vietnam with an Army medical team that treated the local population. He went on to become a revered New York-Presbyterian physician and Columbia University Medical School professor who will long be remembered for his compassion and dedication by patients, colleagues, students, and friends.

Among his many accolades, Jacobs received Columbia’s Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Award and was named the Roy and Diana Vagelos Professor of Medicine, an endowed professorship that will bear his name. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Janice, five children, and nine grandchildren.​​
