Dear Editor:

The news of the passing of Dr. V. Haranatha Reddy has reached Children’s of Alabama and the Department of Pediatrics at UAB.

We wish to openly add our voices to the chorus of those mourning the loss of this doctor in your community and the state of Alabama.

Dr. Reddy’s contributions were recognized by a peer group of pediatricians from across our state as being above and beyond the usual expectations.

For the quality of his service, Dr. Reddy was recognized as a Master Pediatrician in 1999. That is a high honor of recognition and was well deserved.

He also served as president of the Alabama Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics from 2005-2007. A physician of this stature will be missed by the patients in the area, the parents in the community and by those of us at Children’s of Alabama who shared many patients with him and collaborated on their care.

As we said in life Dr. Reddy, “We honor you. We respect you. We admire you.” Thank you for a life well spent serving the children in your region and the state of Alabama

—Wm. Michael Warren

CEO, Children’s of Alabama


—Mitchell B. Cohen, M.D.

Chairman, UAB Department of Pediatrics
