The Ganatra Family

“The doctors at Strong Memorial Hospital (now Golisano Children’s Hospital) were there as our friends, our allies and our advisors. Whenever we needed help, they were there.”

—Tansukh Ganatra

Thanks to a $1.5 million commitment, the Ganatra family will create the Tansukh, Sarla and Rajesh Ganatra Professorship in Pediatric Cardiac Surgery. The family’s generosity is out of gratitude to the URMC doctors who have assisted numerous family members and dear friends.
