New Medical Director Joins the Pediatric Practice

Dr. Sarah Collins-McGowan is excited to join the Golisano Children’s Hospital Pediatric Practice. She did her pediatric training here at URMC and had been working in primary care pediatrics in Rochester for a number of years before joining our team. She is very passionate about providing high quality care in a way that meets children and families where they are and thinking about all the ways health is impacted by social determinants. She has a special interest in advocacy and partnering with community-based organizations as well as in early literacy. But the absolute best part of her job is getting to spend time with kids of all ages!
