Formerly called the Miami Valley Emergency Specialists Consultant Excellence Award, it was renamed for Mukul Chandra, MD, a cardiologist with Premier Health’s Miami Valley hospital and assistant professor of internal medicine with Wright State Boonshoft School of Medicine (BSOM), who passed away in 2020.
On receiving the award Gans said, “I am especially honored, both because of my immense respect for its namesake and also because it is so special to be recognized by my peers. It is my privilege to work alongside the providers in not only the emergency department, but in all areas of Premier Health and Wright State Physicians.”
Along with being a surgeon at WSP Gans is also an assistant professor of surgery with BSOM. She has been with WSP, and in clinical faculty roles with BSOM, since 2015. Gans is also trauma medical director at Premier Health’s Miami Valley Hospital, south campus, and medical director for Life Connection of Ohio, a non-profit that promotes and facilitates organ donation in northwest and west central Ohio.
Kindra Engle, DO, emergency department physician with Premier Health’s Miami Valley Hospital presented Gans with the award and shared, “The emergency department staff were always happy to see Dr. Gans on the call schedule because of her integrity, choosing courage over comfort, and practicing her values rather than professing them. She always does the right thing with patients, and is one of the kindest humans they know.”
Gans earned her medical degree, and completed general surgery residency at BSOM. She also has an MBA, from Wright State University. View Dr. Gans web page here.
