What's New at GML?
After 23 years, Dr. Conrad Schuerch (seated, right) has stepped down as Chairman of Geisinger's Department of Laboratory Medicine to focus on other laboratory activities. Dr. Schuerch came to the lab in 1981 and has served as Chairman since 1993. Under his leadership, the lab has become recognized as a national leader in a number of disciplines and as a model for serving an integrated healthcare delivery system.
Dr. Schuerch plans to continue working as a diagnostic pahtologist and will continue in a few leadership roles, most notably as chairman of the Laboratory Utilization Committee. He also hopes to reestablish the pathology residency program and to serve as its director.
Dr. Myra Wilkerson (standing, left) has assumed the roles of Chairman of the department and, as of September 1, 2016, CLIA laboratory directorship at Geisinger Medical Center. She is committed to building on the achievements and successes of our laboratories under past leadership and to achieving excellence in all aspects of healthcare.
