April 14, 2017 - Statement from Jimmy Ruiz, MD on behalf of Mazzoni Center’s Board of Directors

On April 13, 2017, Dr. Robert Winn tendered, and we accepted, his resignation as medical director of Mazzoni Center. We have taken immediate steps to ensure his patients are cared for by our medical team. Additionally, Dr. Shanin Gross has been named acting medical director, and will be working with an internal leadership team.

Caring for our patients is paramount. Through our staff of 140, Mazzoni Center provides much-needed access to high-quality, comprehensive health and wellness services for the 35,000 patients and clients who pass through our doors each year in a safe, LGBTQ-focused environment.

I also want to emphasize that Mazzoni has not previously ignored and is not now ignoring any allegations. There is zero tolerance at Mazzoni for anything but best practices and appropriate care. In the case of the recent allegation concerning Dr. Winn, our CEO immediately initiated a third-party, legal investigation which is not yet complete. This is a complex situation and we have an obligation to respect the rights and confidentiality of all parties. We also have an obligation to help ensure that the conclusions we reach are based on facts. The Board and staff at Mazzoni will continue to fulfill these commitments in a way that is confidential and thorough to protect everyone’s interests, especially our patients
