Winston E. Gaum, M.D., will join the Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong in August as the new chief of pediatric cardiology. Since 1990 Dr. Gaum has served as Professor of Pediatrics and Medicine at the State University of New York Health Science Center and Chief of the Division of Pediatric Cardiology at Crouse Hospital in Syracuse.

“Dr. Gaum brings a wealth of experience to the role of Division Chief of Pediatric Cardiology at the Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong.  He is an outstanding clinician and administrator and we are delighted that he will be joining our team,” said Elizabeth R. McAnarney, M.D., pediatrician-in-chief of Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong

Dr. Gaum said one of the benefits of coming to the Golisano Children’s Hospital is the new Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit.

“It’s a beautiful facility and it is unique in upstate New York but what really attracted me was the opportunity to work with the Golisano Children’s Hospital’s impressive staff,” Dr. Gaum said. He added that he is also looking forward to working with the leadership of the University of Rochester Medical School.

Roger Vermillion, M.D., will be the associate chief and will continue in a leadership role for expanding clinical services.
