Passion for Pathology

As a member of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Services at NYC Health + Hospitals/Woodhull since 2018, Dr. Gail Prado is passionate about the critical role she and her colleagues play in the care of patients – even if the patients don’t know who they are.

“As pathologists, though we don’t deal directly with patients, we know how much they depend on us for accurate lab tests and biopsy results and collaboration with their treatment team to make a timely diagnosis,” Dr. Prado says. 

Woodhull’s collaborative environment is key to delivering that high quality of care, Dr. Prado says. So when the pathology department went through a major staffing transition in 2023, it was Dr. Prado who stepped up to serve as the department’s liaison with other departments and hospital administration to minimize the impact on patients during the transition. 

“With the retirement of the long-time department chief, another senior pathologist and the lab director all in one year, Dr. Prado played a crucial role in holding the department together through the turnover,” said Woodhull’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Ross MacDonald. “She is truly dedicated to the mission of NYC Health + Hospitals and a driver of the essential work of the pathology department.”

Dr. Prado earned her medical degree in the Philippines and held a variety of clinical and research positions in the New York area and Detroit before completing her pathology residency at St. Barnabas Medical Center in New Jersey in 2017. She joined Woodhull the following year.

Dr. Prado draws her inspiration as a doctor in the city’s public hospital system from her mother, a pediatrician who worked in NYC Health + Hospitals pediatric clinics and emergency departments for more than 30 years.

“Both my parents instilled in me the importance of helping others in need,” she says. “Being a doctor in the public health system means understanding the limitations of our patients and our community and helping them overcome these hurdles. My mother showed me that a supportive and friendly face is as important as treating medical needs.”
