Dr. Greenwald is Chief of the Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine, Executive Vice-Chair for Operations for the Department of Pediatrics, and Professor of Clinical Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medicine. He oversees the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center's Pediatric Critical Care Center, a 23-bed multidisciplinary intensive care unit providing state-of-the art care for the most seriously ill and injured infants, children, and adolescents. The unit specializes in the care of children (up to 21 years of age) with challenging forms of respiratory failure due to severe pneumonia, asthma or viral illnesses, circulatory shock due to overwhelming infection or cardiac failure, and provides post-surgical care for children following cardiac and neurological surgery.

He completed his residency at New York University Medical Center & Bellevue Hospital, where he also served as chief resident, and then completed a fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine at New York Hospital, Cornell University Medical College (now NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medicine). In addition to his clinical, teaching, and research activities at Weill Cornell Medicine, Dr. Greenwald has contributed to the national development of critical care medicine as a vital pediatric sub-speciality.
