Sarah Gehring has been a member of the Dayton Children’s team for nearly 13 years, having started as a staff nurse in the Intermediate Care Unit in 2004 right after graduating with her BSN from Wright State University. In 2012, Sarah obtained her MS in nursing from Wright State University and then obtained certification as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner that same year. She continued her career at Dayton Children’s as a PNP in the Neurology Department and then the Urgent Care at the South Campus before finding her place in the Sleep Medicine department.
sleep medicine is a very interesting blend of pulmonology, neurology, and psychology.
Dayton Children’s is the region’s only pediatric hospital and I have always wanted to specialize in caring for children. Children are more resilient, more innocent, and honestly just more fun!
Dayton Children’s is a place where the people truly care deeply for the children for which they are providing care. Everyone in the multidisciplinary team works together so well and the focus and values of Children’s support not only excellent medical care, but also create a positive experience for our patients and their families while they are in our care.
