Ira Greifer, MD memorial

It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Ira Greifer, MD. In 1965, Dr. Greifer was appointed Director, Pediatrics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where he began developing the pediatric kidney center. Today this center, which in 1997 was renamed the Ira Greifer Children’s Kidney Center, serves as one of the country’s best diagnostic, treatment and clinical research facilities. His family has asked that interested parties make a donation to the Ira Greifer Children’s Kidney Center in his memory. Gifts can be made by either clicking on the donate now button below or by contacting Michelle Blanchard in Montefiore's Office of Development at or 718-920-6656. On behalf of our doctors, staff, patients and families, we thank you for your support.
