After a thorough national search that brought in five candidates from around the country for in-person interviews, David Spiro, M.D., M.P.H., will serve as our new Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Pharmacology and Toxicology Section Chief.
David has served in this interim leadership role for the last 14 months and has been the champion behind multiple paradigm-shifting changes in operations that have improved workflow. David is formally taking over as we are poised to hire multiple faculty, expand our fellowship in the future, and see more children than ever before (approx. 70,000 per year) in our ED. The next steps also include significantly increasing our research footprint in the ED and integrating in new ways with our other clinical services.
Please congratulate David on this important departmental leadership role.
