On behalf of the Division of Neonatology and our neonatal intensive care services at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) – Albert Einstein College of Medicine, we send our deepest sympathies to the family, friends and loved ones of Dr. George Ofori-Amanfo. We were privileged and honored to know and work with George during his time at CHAM when he served as Chief of the Division of Pediatric Critical Care. Dr. Ofori-Amanfo was a master clinician and educator and a truly gentle, kind man who cherished his patients and his colleagues. He was a staunch advocate for all children and their right to equity and health justice.
In addition to his neonatal colleagues who held George in high regard, our Weiler NICU has several staff members from Ghana who were overjoyed and so very proud of Dr. Ofori-Amanfo and all that he achieved, contributed and represented.
May Dr. George Ofori-Amanfo rest in peace and love, and may his memory be a blessing to all.
