Nicole Maronian, MD, FACS, came to UH Cleveland Medical Center in 2006 to develop the Voice and Swallowing Center and has been an integral part of the UH Ear, Nose & Throat Institute ever since. An accomplished surgeon, Dr. Maronian is now Director of the UH Ear, Nose & Throat Institute and, in 2018 became the first female surgical department chair in UH history when she was named the Chair of the Department of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery. Last year, she was appointed as the inaugural Richard W. and Patricia R. Pogue Leadership Chair in Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery.
Dr. Maronian’s philanthropic gifts to UH over the years have supported UH ENT and another area of interest to her – leadership.
In 2019, building on successful relationships with up-and-coming physicians during and after their residency at UH, Dr. Maronian established the Anthony J. Maniglia, MD, Otolaryngology Alumni Society. Consisting of current and former ENT residents, the group is named in honor of the founder and first chair of the UH Department of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery. The society works to advance the educational mission of the UH Ear, Nose & Throat Institute by supporting training initiatives and leadership development that benefit trainees, faculty, and ultimately their care of our patients.
When asked why she gives to UH and shares the little free time that remains in her day to help raise friends and funds for the UH Ear, Nose & Throat Institute, Dr. Maronian references the UH mission: To Heal. To Teach. To Discover.
“Those words express precisely why I am here,” she says. “Each of those pieces is equally important, and UH’s rich history of commitment to healing, teaching and discovery is reflected in our work with patients every day. I appreciate the opportunity to support our UH mission.”
