Gunvor Elizabeth Weirick-Sacks, MD

"To work at CHKD is amazing and an honor. It is Virginia's only freestanding children’s hospital and has such a solid reputation as well as great community support. To have started in pediatrics here almost 30 years ago, and now to be back again and see how much the organization has grown is fantastic."

Dr. Weirick-Sacks, a graduate of the College of William and Mary, practiced in a rural pediatric general practice upon completing her training and enjoyed seeing the same children and watching them grow. But she missed the acuity residency had provided.

When and an opportunity arose to move to a local expanding pediatric emergency room, she took it. Since then, she has practiced emergency pediatrics for over 20 years, most recently in Richmond at a community-based trauma center emergency department.

She loves working with the children and their parents in an acute-care setting, pointing out that every day brings new experiences and new families to work with and sees that as a truly rewarding job, assisting families when they unexpectedly need it the most.

She enjoys winter sports, particularly downhill and cross-country skiing, and hiking with her husband.
