GREENWICH, CT (Jan. 6, 2021) – Yale Medicine pediatric urologist Sarah Lambert, MD, is the inaugural recipient of the Norm Roth Leadership Award established by Greenwich Hospital’s physicians in appreciation of the retired executive’s years of service.

The award includes a $5000 grant to promote the growth of physicians who exhibit strong leadership potential, said Felice Zwas, MD, chief of staff, who announced the award at a recent Medical Staff meeting.

“I am humbled and honored to be the recipient of this award. Norm Roth embodies the drive, intelligence and personal engagement of a true leader,” said Dr. Lambert, with Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital Pediatric Specialty Center in Greenwich. The Darien resident plans to use the grant to continue her education in quality improvement research and leadership.

Since joining Greenwich Hospital in 2017, Dr. Lambert has established a pediatric urology robotic surgery program, along with pediatric multidisciplinary clinics and quality improvement teams to enhance pediatric care. “I believe all children should have access to high quality care within their communities,” she said. “By delivering care in a personalized and familiar manner, children and their families are more at ease during what can be a challenging experience.”

Roth retired in October 2020 after a 41-year career at Yale New Haven Health, including five years as Greenwich Hospital’s president and chief executive officer. Roth called the award the “greatest recognition” of his career, adding that it will help to keep the organization “strong and vital” by identifying “emerging leaders who will be extremely helpful in guiding the hospital and the health system into the future of healthcare delivery.”
