Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced her appointment of Dr. Nadia A. Granger to the position of Monroe County Medical Examiner. Dr. Granger’s appointment follows the service of Dr. Caroline Dignan, who served as Medical Examiner for the past ten years.

“With ten years of experience in medical investigations, pathology, and laboratory medicine, Dr. Nadia Granger is incredibly qualified and the right choice to serve Monroe County as Medical Examiner,” said Dinolfo. “I am proud to entrust Dr. Granger with the task of lead examiner and manager of the Medical Examiner’s Office which serves Monroe County and our nine surrounding counties.

The Office of the Medical Examiner serves to investigate all reported deaths which are not attended by a physician and those which may not be natural in manner. The Office aids in the administration of criminal and civil justice and provides accurate data that can be utilized for public health and educational needs. Key programs in the Medical Examiner’s Office include archival services, investigation services, toxicology laboratory, autopsy services, community education and lecture programs as well as disaster preparedness/mass fatality response.

"We are extremely fortunate to have Dr. Granger as our next Medical Examiner,” said Interim Commissioner of Public Health, Dr. Jeremy Cushman. “She is an excellent forensic pathologist and her experience in this office makes her familiar with the great resources and investigatory talent we have here in Monroe County. I am thrilled that County Executive Dinolfo recognizes these great attributes in our next Medical Examiner.”

Dr. Granger has worked in the Monroe County Office of the Medical Examiner since 2011 as the Associate Medical Examiner.
