It is with deep sorrow that we at Westchester Park Pediatrics and Bridgespan Medicine announce the passing of our dear friend and colleague Dr. Jody Ross Birns.

Together with Dr. Avvocato, Dr. Ross founded Westchester Park Pediatrics with the commitment to deliver quality pediatric care to the Westchester community. Jody was a beloved doctor, mentor, colleague and friend who dedicated her life to the children and families that she loyally served for over 30 years. Her superior knowledge and experience combined with the ability to understand and respond to each family’s individual needs is what made her a truly unique person and a compassionate, caring physician. Her legacy is a testament to that hard work and devotion. We honor her memory by dedicating ourselves to the high level of professionalism that she always espoused.

Dr. Ross considered all of her patients her family. Westchester Park Pediatrics and Bridgespan Medicine remain committed to all of Dr. Ross’s patients, and to creating a professional and caring transition for all families.

Dr. Ross embodied a level of caring and love for her patients that we hope to always continue in her memory. She will be missed by all her family, friends, and colleagues.

Memorial Services will be held Sunday, September 11 at 10:00 a.m. at Westchester Reform Temple, 255 Mamaroneck Road, Scarsdale, NY  10583.

Her family requests that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Medical Doctor’s Fund, Lauder Breast Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 300 East, 66th Street, NY, NY 10065
