Dr. Walt Ingram

Remembering Dr. Walt Ingram

From Dr. Robert Jansen, Chief Medical Officer & Dr. Michelle Wallace, Chief Nursing Officer, Grady Health System,

It is with great sadness to inform you of the passing of Dr. Walter Ingram, a beloved member of the Grady family since 1992. Dr. Ingram will be remembered as the “grandfather” of the burn program and his contributions to the patients at Grady will be his enduring legacy.

 Our deepest sympathies are with Dr. Ingram’s family. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers while respecting their privacy during this extremely difficult time. We will keep you informed on memorial arrangement details as they become available.
