This endowment, created by his family, honors the memory of the late Howard A. Mermelstein, MD, a beloved UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh pediatrician, respected mentor, published clinical investigator, Korean War veteran and honored past president of the Allegheny County Medical Society.
Dr. Mermelstein’s role as a member of Children’s Hospital’s medical staff began with his pediatric residency in 1949, after a one-year rotating internship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, a year of fluid balance research with Thaddeus Danowski, MD, and culminated with his medical staff presidency in 1989–90.
The endowment supports several activities of Children’s medical alumni, the association of current and past members of Children’s faculty and voluntary medical staff.
Dr. Mermelstein devoted his life to caring for Pittsburgh’s children and their families. This peer-awarded honor recognizes outstanding academic pediatricians/pediatric surgeons and community-based pediatricians on an alternating basis. The awardee is a beloved practitioner, active in the community and committed to children, teaching and the betterment of the profession.
